    Inishere Rules

    Favorite thing: I ended up going to Inishere the first time by mistake. I had originally bought my ticket in Galway for Inismore, but I got so carried away talking on the ferry that I missed my stop and instead wound up on Inishere. I couldn’t have been more surprised by it. It is truly a magical island, as all of the Aran islands are, but there is something special about this one. Maybe it’s because it’s the first island that I visited, but it will always remain my favorite. Very few tourists visit it and as far as I can remember, there is only one pub. The views are spectacular, however, and the ruins that abound on the island are fascinating. Wonderfully warm locals, as well.

    Fondest memory: One night I was in the pub on Inishere and I must have been the only tourist on the island. I was alone and everyone was being really friendly to me so I felt really comfortable. At one point during the night some of the women got up to folk dance and they needed an extra person to make the set. I got up and volunteered since my mom use to teach it in the states. It was very magical, dancing like that in a real pub in Ireland to live music. Very entrancing.

    Inishere Flora and Fauna

    Favorite thing: Inisheer shares the same rich plant and flora species as the famous Burren region in Co. Clare. The island has interest for ornithology, botany and those that have an inclination for the wonders of the sea.

    The cliffs at Inishmore

    Favorite thing: The cliffs at Inishmore...

    Its a done thing there to be leaning over the edge of the cliffs and get yr picture taken! Strong winds or not...:P

    Fondest memory: Despite the crowds that descend during the tourist season, you can still find enough open spaces. Walking/ cycling along the many long and winding paths, between stone walls, along small beaches and little houses, is as good as it gets!
