Castle on the hill
Inis Oírr may be small but there's plenty to see. The ruins of O’Brien’s Castle, located on one of the island's highest points, offer commanding views. The castle was built in the 14th century, within the Stone Age Dún Formna fort, by the O'Brien clan who ruled the island at that time.
IF YOU HAVE MORE TIME
Mixing homegrown ingredients with local culinary traditions gives the lovely little café of Teach an Tae a foodie edge. The baking is a real delight, with fluffy scones and Irish porter cake, but don’t miss lunch favourites, too, including fresh Inis Oírr mackerel, homegrown vegetable soup and hens’ egg salad.
