Hi. My husband and I are thinking of spending 2 nights in Inisbofin the August bank holiday weekend. I have been told its great crack there. We are both in our early 30s. Would it be good fun there that weekend or will everyone be in Galway for the races

1. Re: Inisboffin

Never having been on the island during the Galway Races we can't help you with that part of your query but as one of the daytime delights of Inishbofin is it's tranquility and stunning landscapes and beaches in our opinion the fewer people there the better! The year-round population is only around the 200 mark and we wouldn't imagine many do travel to the mainland for the races so the level of 'local' craic in the island's pubs and bars at night should remain the same as it always is - there will doubtless be more trad music and dancing than usual to be found somewhere too as it's the height of the tourist season...


Just make sure that your journey up to Cleggan, for the boat over, doesn't get you snarled up in the races traffic on the way...
