Well worth the walk from the pier.........& not far from the shipwreck. Great views of the Cliffs of Moher as well.

On the far side of Inis Oirr but well worth the walk, some excellent photo opportunities.

“Amazing little island packed with historical significance and culture.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2012

I didn't actually get to see the lighthouse because the road to it had been washed away, but I saw the rest of the island. The natives are extremely friendly. The accommodations are lovely. The island boasts all kinds of natural phenomena like seal lookouts for a small seal colony as well as ancient ruins and historical castles. There is also a historical society stocked with lovely hand knitted items, etc. They gave a map of the island to find everything, like the shipwreck that you can walk right into. At night, Tig Raurie (sp?) Rory's House is the place to be. It's a bed and breakfast with two bars. One bar closes early and then you migrate to the other one for traditional Irish music as well as modern music. There is much Gaelic being bantered around because this is the place where the Irish go to get away from it all. You can't go wrong staying here a night or two and maybe you'll want to stay longer once you have a taste of it!

Can see a panoramic view from the top. Difficult to ride uphill on bike. Recommend hiking up.
