Sail to Ireland's unusual islands


In addition to its mainland, Ireland is made up of dozens of small islands. Feel free to reach out to one of our local Evaneos agents before planning your trip through the archipelago.

Active travelers will love riding their bikes on Inis Mór, the largest of the Aran Islands. This island is home to over 50 historical monuments, including Dún Aonghasa, a mysterious archaeological site overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Follow the signs written in Gaelic to track down a local hostel and savor a delicious lamb stew.

We also recommend taking a boat to Skellig Michael, an islet off the coast of County Kerry, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1996. Star Wars fans will certainly recognize this area as it was featured in two of the saga’s films. Deserted in the past because of frequent Viking attacks, it is now one of Ireland's top must-see locations. Nature lovers will also enjoy spotting the many bird species that inhabit the island.
