They say a day at the beach is the best escape anyone can have (get it? b-e-a-c-h?), and we can’t help but agree. Whether it’s the feeling of sand underfoot or the seabreeze on your cheek, nothing compares to the sights, sounds and smells that fill up your senses when wandering along the shore.
The largest of all three Aran Islands, Inis Mór’s long standing traditions have certainly withstood the test of time. Scattered across its 7,635 acres you’ll find ancient stone forts, monuments of Christian and Celtic mythological heritage and panoramic views second to none. If it’s an authentic Irish experience you’re after, a trip to the island of Inis Mór is as Irish as a pint of Guinness eating a bag of Tayto.
This June, Ireland will host one of the six stops of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series 2017 at Poll Na Péist (Serpent’s Lair) on Inis Mór. The world’s elite male and female cliff divers will return for the third time to the rugged west coast of Ireland for a dramatic competition opener on the edge of Europe.
