Reachable by ferry or plane from Rosaveel, Galway or Doolin, and easily navigated on foot or bike, the islands harbor a number of attractions, including the remains of one of the world’s smallest churches and a 16th-century castle once used by Oliver Cromwell’s troops. Inis Mór is the largest and most developed of the three, at a mere 12km long, and home to the well-preserved Dún Aenghus fortress, perched on the cliff edge and affording expansive views over to the mainland. The less-visited Inis Meain and the smallest island, Inis Óirr, also boast impressive ruins – the former in the form of a 4th-century A.D fort, and the latter, an impressive 3-story 16th-century castle.
