Inishmaan Island is the least visited of the three islands. The island has crystal clear views of the Cliffs of Moher and some interesting Celtic and Christian sites.
The island was a retreat for the famous playwright JM Synge who took inspiration from the Aran Islands for many of his works such as “Riders of the Sea” and “The Playboy of the Western World”. Teach Synge is the cottage to which the playwright returned each year – a small, whitewashed, thatched-roof traditional cottage that has been preserved as a museum and dedicated to the life of Synge, open to the public during the summer months.
Inishmaan has recently become a centre for diving, a wonderful experience with some beautiful marine life to see and clear waters. Inishmaan is accessible by ferry from Rossaveal port with shuttle bus service from Galway City, from Doolin by ferry or by air on Aer Arann.
