PONY & TRAP
You can hire a traditional ‘Pony & Trap’ on upon arriving, or you may be picked up as you walk along the winding paths. These traps are driven by friendly islander jarveys who will talk about the island with you and answer all your questions about island life. This is a lovely way to see the island and there is no more stylish way to arrive at your accommodation than in a horse and carriage!
Bicycles are the best way to get around, meeting people along the way you will get a better feel of island life. Bikes can be hired from the top of the pier with a free map upon which the islands sites are marked. They are open daily from 9am to 7pm. For further information on Bicycle hire phone (099) 75033
What better way to discover Inis Oírr than by exploring this beautiful landscape by foot. You can take off on your own or you can take the Inis Oírr Walk Way Trail. The Inis Oírr way walk is 10/12 km and about 3 to 3 ½ hours. This is a very special walk and all who do it will thoroughly enjoy it. To begin, the tour should be started at Cnoc Raithní which is a circular mound behind the beach and in front of the football pitch.

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.
