This stunning wreck is an easy 30-odd minute (depending on whether you dawdle admiring the scenery on the way) walk from both the port and the airport. It is well worth it as it is still an impressive site.

You can walk all the way around the wreck and explore the rest of the shore. When we were there there was also mobile food/drink stand and a souvenir stall. Follow the road around past the wreck for a pleasant loop that brings you back to the village.

To get right up close to the wreck requires climbing/stepping over large boulders. It is a good spot to picnic at on a nice day.

A cargo vessel that was wrecked on Inis Oírr/Inisheer in 1960. A later storm drove it higher onto the rocks where it now is. It's a striking landmark. We reached it as part of a pony and cart tour of the island.

We enjoyed exploring the island and shipwreck. We took one of the horse and carriage rides to the ship wreck and on the way back we had the driver drop us off at the base of the castle so we could explore. Also had a really good panini and the seaweed cafe before getting back on the boat. Lots of rock walls.

Lovely loop walk around the island brings you past this wreck from the 1960s.

Great photo opportunity against the stunning island backdrop.

Tip : There was a little shop open beside the wreck selling beautiful hand made candles ( scents were like those from the white company !!) ... but they only take cash.

During a wild Atlantic storm The Plassey was badly damaged and began to sank, all souls on board were thankfully saved. The storm was so strong it threw the ship far in land where is has been rusting for well over 40 years now. There is a really eerie feel to this hulking wreck and you have many great photo opertunities.

I'm posting under the Plassey Wreck attraction as there was no separate section to review the other bits I loved about this Island.

We arrived on Inis Oirr with O'Brien Line Ferries... the first thing we did was to catch a ride with the fantastic Eammon and his horse Bob on a pony and trap tour of the island.

This was brilliant and Hugely recommended (the pony/trap drivers are waiting for you at the end of the pier). It cost just E10 each - and that is money that goes directly to supporting those who live on the island.

Eammon, a softly-spoken, wonderful person, took us through paths and roads, explaining the history of the area and what it is like for islanders nowadays.

We visited the Plassey Wreck (which was so much fun for a diehard Father Ted fan), and onwards up to the castle... we had to walk up a little hill because it was a bit too steep for the horse.

Bob (the horse), was an extremely well-cared for Clydesdale, and it was such a pleasure doing this trip with them both.

Then, we called in to see the lovely lady who runs the Castle cafe (at the foot of the castle, in her own house). She is an absolute legend, serving up interesting tales and the best seafood chowder we've ever tried.

She also has a library of books on the local area to browse through while you're waiting for food.

A really lovely adventure.

I couldn’t find anyplace to review Innis Oirr island so I’m reviewing it here. We took the ferry over from Doolin & took a horse & buggy ride around the island. It was very pleasant & our guide was a character. I noticed a dog running along with our carriage & it was the owners dog. The Plassey wreck was interesting as was the entire island. It’s like time stood still here. I recommend checking it out.
Enjoy!

If you're going to Inisheer you have to go up to see the Plassey. The view of the Cliffs of Moher is good from this end of the island. There is a telescope there too if you want a better view of the cliffs. The shipwreck is interesting to walk around. I would have liked to see some information up telling us a little bit about it.

We took a ferry from Doolin to the Island and passed on the bikes and buggy in favor of a walk on the island. The walk to the Plassey Wreck is stunning. The slow pace lets you enjoy the peacefulness of this place. All of the stone fences are gorgeous and you will see plenty of farm animals. The walk is gentle it took us about 35 minutes to get to the wreck. We were pokey and took lots of photos. :) you have to walk over large uneven stones to get to the ship, so be prepared with supportive shoes especially if it's damp. It's worth the effort to get there. You can actually climb inside the ship although maybe this moment wasn't my smartest since it's completely rusted out. You get great views from here (weather dependent) including the lighthouse and Galway Bay.

Renowned from the Father Ted serious its a nice walk down, take a left just after the air strip but walk back the other way and you get a lovely view of the lake. Unfortunately the recent stormy winters have had its toll on the Plassey and another couple of those winters will see it cordined off I reckon. Also go th Aras Eanna the story of the plassey was on the coffee shop wall, interesting reading.
