Inishmaan (Inis Meain) is the middle island among the three Aran Islands. This Island has remained the quietest and least visited by tourists throughout the years. The population of Inishmaan is about 200 people.
There are over 300 flowering plants on the island, from places as far as the Arctic and the Mediterranean regions. A wide variety of nesting birds and natural ecosystems can be found on this serene Island.
Inishmaan is truly an escape from the modern world. The Island is a maze of winding roads, lane ways and trails that take you around the rugged landscape. Like the other Aran Islands there are rocky hillsides, beaches, and wild flowers blooming throughout.
The Island hosts Irish language and Traditional Culture courses where you can learn about the history and traditions of the Aran Islands from music, story-telling and poetry. to set dancing and environmental studies. Inishmaan ferries depart twice a day from Doolin.
Easy to book, and a lovely cruise in front of the cliffs. Comfortable boat with an informed crew. Tickets bought online should mention to head straight to the pier.
Easy to book from friendly staff, great looking at the cliff’s from out at sea, staff aboard ship were friendly and helpful.
An one hour boat trip close to Moher Cliffs, really not so expensive, but so many memories.
