Inis Óirr, also called Inisheer, is the smallest and southernmost of the Aran Islands in County Galway, Ireland. It is easily visible from the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare.




The island is Irish-speaking, but you shouldn't have any trouble at all finding someone who speaks English.

Get around

Walking is the ideal way to wander around this island. If pressed for time, however, other options available include bicycle hire, pony and trap, or the "wanderly wagon" experience - this being a tractor and converted trailer that provides a tour - all these are available from pier.


  • The ship from Father Ted, an old shipwreck about 50 minutes walk from the pier.
  • The graveyard, also contains a very old chapel, once run by St. Kevin, the older brother of St. Kevin of Glendalough.




  • There are many local pubs.
