Cycling Along The Wonderful Hand-Built Stone Walls On Inis Oírr (Video)

Back in February, I spent a couple of days in County Clare on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way.

Now I’ve visited Clare a tonne of times in the past and this time, like every other time, I encountered the exact same problem. A monumental problem, at that.

There’s just too much stuff to do to squeeze into a tiny weekend break!

On this particular visit, however, I decided to pop a trip to Inis Oírr at the top of the list and took a ferry from Doolin (a village with an awful lot going for it) over to the smallest of Galway’s Aran Islands.

If you’re planning a visit to Inis Oírr you won’t be disappointed. 

You can casually stroll around the island at your own pace or rent a bike and zip along the beautiful stone walls that wind around every corner of the island.

Hit play above to get a glimpse at what cycling around the island entails.

And that's a wrap!
Oh, and apologies in advance to those of you who encounter motion sickness after watching it – carrying a camera while trying to control a bike with a dodgy wheel is trickier than it looks!
Howaya! Thanks for visiting the Irish road trip! This site exists to inspire and guide you on an Irish adventure that’ll give birth to a lifetime of memories (sounds very arsey altogether, I know!) You'll find everything from things to do in Ireland to where to stay in Ireland (unique and unusual places) if you have a nosey around!
