Not far from the small village is O’Brien’s Castle, a 15th century tower house that stands within a stone fort. Also worth visiting are St. Gobnait’s Church, or Cill Ghobnait, the Church of the Seven Daughters, or Cill na Seacht nInghean.
The main village is separated from the airstrip by a very long sandy beach backed by sand dunes. A good selection of restaurants, B&B’s, pubs and a hotel is available in the village – all close to the beach and fishing harbour.

Inis Mór is the largest of the three islands. It’s principal village is Kilronan where there is a good, deep harbour. An excellent Visitor’s Centre, Ionad Arainn, for the history and culture of the island.
Inis Meáin the middle island. There is one pub which is thatched and kept in the old traditional style. There is no bank on the island, so the bank flies in with Aer Arann once a month for business.
Inis Oírr, the smallest island, contains the ruins of St. Kevin’s Church, or Teampal Chaomhain, now sunk deeply into a sandy hill close to the shore. The saint’s feast day is June 14th.
