We headed off again further up the west coast. Kate was keen for a quiet morning and I was keen to get back out exploring, so I jumped on to a ferry again and headed out to the Aran Islands. A set of three islands, the furtherst (and largest) is now famous for being the location of the film The Banshees of Inishirin. I was just up for a few hours of exploring so headed to the smallest, closest island Inis Oírr, also known as Inisheer.
A quick 20 minute ferry and I was there. being only 2km x 3km, I headed off wandering the island. With a small township and then miles and miles of stone walls, I made my way to some of the notable sights, including large shipwreck, still sitting on the beach, the lighthouse, and some ruins of churches and forts. I had enough time for cheeky pint before catching the ferry back and then onwards up the coast.
On the way we stopped by one of the ancient burial grounds that dot the country.
Our Friday night was in the busy town of Westport, which judging by the music going late into the night gets its fair share of visitors.
