Ireland | Inis Mór Photo Essay

Inis Mór is one of three islands that make up the Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland. Inis Mór translates into English as ‘big island’, making it the main island of the Aran Islands. With 850 inhabitants, 14 villages and 5 pubs, it’s like stepping into a John Hinde postcard. See for yourself with these pictures!


Have you been to Inis Mór before? Do you think it’s a place you’d like to visit?

  1. The Aran islands are so beautiful! My boyfriend’s family is from there and I had a chance to visit with him a year ago and it was lovely. I loved how the island was so small that they were able to wave at everyone because they knew who everyone on the island was!

    1. That’s so cool! That’s the way it is here in Ireland with small towns and villages, everyone knows each other ☺


  2. Been there the past summer and I loved it. I was super lucky with the weather. Sunshine pure and almost no rain. I missed bringing sunscreen. Huge mistake 😀 Aran Islands are indeed beautiful and magnificent.

    1. It was my first time there. I have to visit the other islands as well. Oh no, people forget that we can get good weather and when we do you can burn. It’s a special place for me as it was on Inis Mór last year that I asked my now partner to make our relationship official 😊

  3. WE loved Inis Mor and were happy to have a pony and trap guide John show us around. we climbed Dun Angeous and the view was breathtaking { so was the climb up!!} We are big fans of the mov Leap Year and wanted to see the proposal site up there! Our guide John also showed us where Declans bar from the movie was although its not the same now!.

    1. That’s great to read Linda 😊 Yeah I was out of breath too climbing up to the top of Dún Aengus 😂 I’ve never actually seen Leap Year and didn’t know they filmed on Inis Mór 😊 I’ll have to go back again.
