Inis Oírr (Inisheer) Seaport

Inisheer (Inis Oírr) lies 8 kilometres off the coast of County Clare. It is an Island of sheer beauty and wandering along its shores it's easy to get the impression that you have the whole world to yourself.

Inisheer has probably been inhabited for 5,000 years but the earliest evidence of civilisation is at Cnoc Raithní, a Bronze Age burial mound dating from 1500BC. Nearby are Teampall Chaomhán, a Medieval church ruin half buried in the sand and the 16th Century Caisleán Uí Bhríain, an imposing three storey tower house built within a Stone Age fort. To the north of the island golden sandy beaches offer safe swimming and stunning vistas of Connemara, while the eastern shore boasts a shipwreck and breathtaking views of the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren.
