  • Don't do what some American tourists were - climbing the castle walls for selfies not advised! Enjoy the amazing views and respect this historic site.  more »
  • This is a must if you’re on Inisheer, the castle is located on the highest point of the island. It has spectacular views of the cliffs of Moher far off in the distance and the other two aran islands. ...  more »
  • Inis Oirr is the smallest of the Aran Islands, but has lots to see. The island itself is just beautiful, the colors of the ocean made me feel like I was in the Caribbean, not Ireland. If you are lucky...  more »

  • A beautifal hike up to the castle(horse rides are available to a point) and an even greater sight once your there. No fees and locals are nice which makes this a great place to explore for a day.
  • It is a climb to get there, but you'll have a nice (panoramic) view once you're there. And it is free to enter, which is always nice.
  • Off the West Coast of Ireland, the Isles of Arran await you! Soak up a culture where Gaelic is still spoken, have a "99" ice cream and enjoy some lovely beaches!
  • Caisleáin Uí Bhriain ar Inis Oírr agus gan mórán eolas againn air. We do not know a huge amount about O'Brien's Castle on Inishere but there is a strong local favour for County Clare and there is the geological link to the Burren The castle is on a hill and is a nice brisk walk giving great views of the Cliffs of Moher, the Aran Islands and the Wild Atlantic
  • A must see location on your trip to the Aran Islands
