Get there by bicycle the best option. The horse and cart do the trip but its a bit of a walk from the drop off point about 20 minutes hard walk.

I saw the fort on our scenic fly-in with Aer Aran, a fabulous way to see the islands and coastline. The hike is all up uphill, although it is fairly moderate and steady, but definitely not a casual stroll. The weather was gorgeous for us that day. There are restrooms at the visitor center, but nothing along the way. This... More

We took a tour in an 18 seat coach. They arrive to pick up outside the Tourist office from 10. 30 . We had a great guide named Bertie , he stopped anywhere we showed interest & told us all about Island life. The main attraction is Dun Aengus. We were left there for 2 hours to visit the center...

The cliffs at Dun Aengus are just breathtaking! This is great spot in Aran Island, especially on a sunny day. You can go until the entrance by bike and then will need to walk a little bit. But it's worth a visit!

Had great weather at Dun Aengus. Cost was 4 euro. Its only from the top you can truly appreciate the military advantages of the site. The visit was slightly spoiled by a large party of teenagers from Germany & Switzerland, one of whom 'tagged' the monument with graffiti.

I have been to Dun Aengus several times and each time takes my breath away. It is the everlasting, ancient feat, build off a magnificent cliff overlooking the Atlantic. It is a bit of a harrowing walk (even with the modern walkways), but well worth the hike. I would also recommend taking a horse and trap ride around the islands... More

One of the most breathtaking sites in Ireland. A must visit in Innismore. I'd hire bikes and cycle on the beautiful roads to the site

The views are stunning, the history of the location, some 5000 years worth, at sunset…need I say more?!

This is one one of the most spectacular places that I've been in Ireland and a MUST when visiting Inis Mór (Inishmore). The prehistoric fort is on the side of a cliff with views far better than what you get at the Cliffs of Moher (although the Cliffs of Moher are fantastic as well). There are many, uneven, stone-steps to... More
