The Island

Inishmore (or Inis Mór) is the largest of the Aran Islands in Galway Bay in Ireland and has an area of 31 square kilometres (12 sq mi). Inishmore has a population of about 840, making it the largest of the Aran Islands in terms of population. The island is famous for its strong Irish culture, loyalty to the Irish language, and a wealth of Pre-Christian and Christian ancient sites including Dún Aengus, described as "the most magnificent barbaric monument in Europe"

 

Local Attractions:

 

At Tigh Fitz you are close to a multitude of natural wonders right within walking distance:

 

Teampall Bheanain: At the top of the hill is the little church of St. Benan which is Europe's smallest church. From here you will experience the panoramic view across both sides of the island Inis Meanin, Inis Oirr to the south east and the Cliffs of Moher in Co. Clare to the east.

 

Dún Dubhchathair: One of two cliff forts on Inis Mór, the other being Dún Aonghasa. Spectacularly set high above the cliffs it is less visited than Dún Aonghasa but no less impressive. You may even be the only one there when you visit!
