Center of the island

There are more than 260 inhabitants on the island. They live mainly in the centre of the island. You will find 3 Irish Pubs, a souvenir shop, a hotel and a grocery store. A youth hostel as well as a campsite located on a beautiful beach are also available for tourists…

The pubs are ideal for a stopover: they serve tasty meals for reasonable budgets and the atmosphere in these establishments is quite remarkable. It is not rare to eat there just for the excuse of listening to some music played by a local band!

You can easily talk with the locals: they are very welcoming and will not hesitate to show you the most beautiful corners of Inisheer.

A 100% Gaeltacht Population

Many visitors come to Inisheer to enjoy Irish Gaelic classes given on the island. These courses are aimed at people of all levels who wish to learn or perfect their command of the language…
