  • O'briens Castle is on the "one" Hill at Inisheeru, to get to it is primarily on the round a total of záhul. But when you can do it, you see a great view of the whole island. Basket case itself is not much of anything, you can gain insight into the remnants of the two rooms, and if you're idiots, maybe you'll climb the stone wall (unfortunately I saw there such experts). However, if you are on the Inisheeru, you would certainly not miss it.

  • If visiting Inisheer, I recommend walking up the hill to O'Brien's Castle. Built in the 14th Centurey- amazing that it's still standing. The view from the top of the hill is incredible.  more »

  • The castle itself isn't that interesting, but the view of the rest of the island from it is spectacular.
  • 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
