    day trip to Inis More
    James_P, Mar 2023
    the landscape and history are fascinating, the people are friendly and the local cuisine is hearty and filling.
    GREAT day and want to visit again!!!!

    An excellent way spend my kids 18 and 20 bday!! bus ride to and from was wonderful. Boat ride was fun. We were prepared for rain but forgot to pack dry socks and shoes - our fault totally! Bike ride was fun but I think we would have gotten more local information from a pony driver. You MUST go see the fort!! AMAZING!!! If we did the pony ride we may have see more of the island but not sure. Biking was very fun and made the day memorable... but I don't know If I'd do it again. There is so much more to the Island I'd like to see.
    Great fun.

    Hassle-free however it would've been nice if they also offered transportation or tours for the island.
    Had a wonderful family...

    Had a wonderful family day out, rented bikes and off we went. There was rain showers at times and that didn't dampen the day we had! Would recommend it to everyone.

    I am still here in Inis Mor for a couple of days and would recommend anyone to take the boat trip to the Island. It is a wonderful experience so much to see and do.
    A great Day the mainland.

    It was extraordinary experience for my young children and I. My 12 year old daughter said that it was an experience of her life time. Our tour guide tomás gave us an excellent knowledge and history of the island . I'd highly recommend it to anyone

    les paysages sont magnifiques. On a eu le sentiment d'être coupé du monde surtout que nous avons réussi à trouver des lieux où nous étions seuls ou presque!!! Par contre il y a à mon sens trop de véhicules circulant sur la route côtière, c'est dommage.
