If you are on the island for a few days...The first day should include the mandatory tourist Bicycle ride to Dun Aenghus...The second day...head in the opposite direction than the tourists and treat yourself to a shorter cycle...a trek along a Heron-Sentried sanctuary...where nesting Herons watch over you...en route across the Limestone laden runway to the Black fort (Dun Duchathair)... 更多
well worth the hike up and once up there the views are great and you can see the whole of Galway bay and the mountains of Connemara in the distance if the day is clear - you can also see the Cliffs of Moher. It would be great if the OPW did the tower beside this attraction up a bit... 更多
These tiny islands meant a great deal to ancient civilizations and to early Christian Rome. Don't miss the islands, being so important to the highest of ancient society there is something we have missed if we forget in our age to spend time here to reflect what's important in our quick life.

Cycle or walk as far as you can, We ditched the bikes half way up and walked the rest of the way. Once up there the views are amazing from on the walls. It's amazing it's still standing after all these years. The entrance is round the far side to which you'll approach it so just follow the trodden path... 更多
I had this gem to myself in the early morning before I left to go back on the ferry. The views were spectacular. It doesn't feel as touristy as Dun Aonghasa.

From the front wall of the fort there is a breathtaking view of Inis Mór and the coast stretching back towards the... 更多
Got lost trying to find the highest spot on the island. We decided to take back graveled roads with bikes (not the best decision) to find the lighthouse. Roads were too difficult for riding bikes, it would have been much easier to take the main road. Although we saw a lot of beautiful scenery on our back roads tour. Sad... 更多
Fantastic scenery at Dún Eochla- the highest point on Inis Mór. Well worth the walk up - it's just a pity that the lighthouse is closed. It'd be great if there was a visitor centre or shop or café or something nice up there!
The thickness of the walls in this fortress & it's high location is awe inspiring when one reflects on how old it is. Well worth the scramble over walls.
