      Where do we catch the ferry if coming from Doolin? I am assuming pretty chilly in May?

      Hi! I will be on the island for a night in May and want to get to Westport in County Mayo. What is the best way to do this? We have such a limited amount of time and really want to see both places, so any sugestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!

      Only 3 hrs to visit the island?

      by schmechi Online Now Apr 12, 2011 at 11:59 PM

      Regarding there are ferries to Inishmore from Ros a'Mhil at 1pm. The last return ferry will be at 5pm. Regarding to my information the sailing time will be 45 minutes...

      So do you think, that this short time on the island suffice to get an impression and to visit the major sights by rented bycicle? I realize, that it will probably be a very compendious tour, but unfortunately my time is very limited and I'd like to visit parts of Connemara (I'm thinking about Kylemore Abbey and a quick look at the Twelve Bens) ante meridien...

      Or should I even forego the Aran islands and make a more detailed Connemara-tour?

    • Irish Greetings

      by aacalhoun Online Now May 16, 2010 at 11:46 AM

      I would love to learn a few words in Irish to use in Gaeltacht areas. I have a book on Irish place names and have learned a little from that. And I know how to say Slainte. But I know little else and when I know the word, I worry about correct pronunciaton. Might you tell me a few phrases such as "hello," "please," "thank you" "pardon me" and "where is.." along with some type of pronunciation guide (this is the hard part, I think). Thank you so much.

      Surfing on Inishmore?

      by GemTones Online Now Nov 11, 2006 at 4:35 PM

      My niece is getting married on Inishmore in September of '07. I am debating making the trek from California. I know there is quality surf in parts of Ireland and that September is a good month for swells, does anyone know if there are surf spots on the island. It would seal the deal for me.
