WHERE

Based off the west coast of Ireland, we are located on the largest of the world famous Aran Islands, Inis Mor.
Inis Mor (pronounced inish more) is one of the Irelands most well known and popular tourist destinations. During the summer months, Inis Mor is a busy vibrant melting pot of people visiting from all over the world. Inis Mor is the epitome of Irish culture offering a really unique and authentic cultural experience through language, music, history, food and drink. Picture yourself here during the Summer days close to the beautiful sandy beaches on one side of the island and jaw-dropping steep cliffs on the other all surrounded by the deep blue sea. By day take in the stunning scenery, by night enjoy a fun nightlife with a variety of food, drink, live music and pubs and restaurants.
