Getting to the Aran Islands.

The celebrated Plassey shipwreck is renowned all over the globe. She appears at the beginning of the famous comedy show, Father Ted and is an absolute must-see for travellers to this, the smallest of the three Aran Islands. Since March 1960, this unexpected arrival has become an essential member of the community on Inis Oírr.

The Plassey Shipwreck is a highlight of every Wanderly Wagon Tour.

Loch Mór (in English, Big Lake) is the only freshwater lake on Inis Oírr, located just off the road to the Plassey Shipwreck. The Loch provides visitors with an opportunity to find solitude and peace around its tranquil waters.

O’Brien’s Castle, located on the high point of the island, dates back to the 14th century. The castle was besieged by the O’Flahertys of Connemara in 1582 who were driven west by the Norman conquest but fought fiercely for their local influence. Years later it was taken again by English Cromwellian forces and partially destroyed in favour of other strongholds and ring forts on Inis Mór. Today visitors taking the ferry from Doolin see this magnificent ruin first, overlooking the beaches and pier below, when they arrive.

Teampall Caomhán, also known as St. Caomhán’s church or St. Cavan in English, is a 10th century ruin located opposite the airstrip in the Inis Oírr graveyard. Popularly referred to as the ‘Sunken Church’, it is one of the best preserved examples in Ireland and easily accessible to visitors, but the chancel is the only part of the building that can be seen today.

Brid was incredible. She was friendly, accommodating and super personable. We had a group of 11 adults and two small children and we comfortably fit in her wagon. Highly recommend this service.

Definitely a must-do when you’re on the islands. We were with a tour bus that suggested taking a horse and carriage, tractor and trailer, or biking through the island. Glad we ended with the tractor and trailed, most convenient method...

Great way to view the island! Our guide did a great job of speaking English, since he said they only speak Irish except to tourists, and this was only day 3 of the tourist season. He was nice and knowledgeable....
