  • Great spot, not touristy, beautiful Atlantic shorelines and beaches. Good food, including fresh seafood daily, drinks and plenty of local musicians to keep you entertained. Walk, swim, sail or cycle...or just do nothing! Only accessible by passenger ferry so no cars other than islanders.
  • A island off the west coast of Ireland it is modern with a rural feel one thinks they are back 100 yrs ...friendly people who welcome u with open arms
  • The scenery and views are to die for. Has great walking trails and not too hectic. Also has good beaches. Very accessible from the mainland by quick ferry, circa 35 minutes.
  • White sand beaches are amazing in good weather
  • I'm an Islander from the Island of Inishbofin...its the most magicalplace you could ever be on in the summer
