Today we set sail towards the enchanting shores of Inisheer, the smallest of the Aran Islands in Ireland. With its labyrinth of stone walls, whitewashed cottages, and sandy beaches, Inisheer appears like an impressionist painting come to life. The island's landscape is a testament to the resilience and ingenuity of its inhabitants, who have painstakingly crafted their homes from the limestone that blankets the island.
Included Shore Excursions:
Option 1: Historical Walking Tour
Embark on a guided walking tour through Inisheer's rich history. Visit the iconic O'Brien's Castle, perched atop the highest point of the island, offering panoramic views of the surrounding seascape. Discover the ancient Church of Saint Kevin and the sunken graveyard, which bears silent witness to centuries of island life.
Option 2: Bike Ride Exploration
Rent a bicycle and explore the island at your own pace. Cycle along the island's winding lanes, past dry-stone walls, and through fields carpeted with wildflowers. Stop for a picnic on one of the island's pristine beaches or take a refreshing dip in the clear Atlantic waters.
Option 3: Traditional Irish Music Session
