Inis Oirr & Cliffs of Moher Cruise (The Doolin Ferry Company) in County Clare
Inis Oírr (Inisheer) is the smallest of the three Aran Islands. Its name means “Back Island” and is the closest island to Doolin Pier. Inis Oírr is a charming island with a lot to offer - visitors to this island can enjoy Medieval Ruins, Seal Colonies, a Shipwreck (of Father Ted fame), Fantastic Walks, and much more.
From this island you can get the true feeling that the islands were once part of The Burren, Co. Clare. The flora and landscape of this island has northern and alpine species which are rare and under conservation order. All visitors are advised to be respectful of the natural environment when visiting. Looking out onto the Clare Coastline visitors can witness breath-taking views of The Cliffs of Moher from a truly unique perspective. The main sights of Inis Oírr are all easily accessible from the port of arrival and the beach lies just to the left of the Pier where you arrive.
There are 3 Pubs serving food & refreshments, a small convenient store for bits & pieces, and an array of cafes for delicious island fare.
This Island visit is a great combination with the breath taking Cliffs of Moher Cruise.
