Inishmoor, the biggest of the Aran Islands (transport by the Ferry Link,
a part of Lally, and
Ragus, a musical experience performed on Inishmoor.
You can get to Inishmoor in a lot of ways. I chose to get close by bus,
and then take a short trip by boat (a kind of sea bus), as I didn't
want to get seasick.
Inishmoor is 9 miles long and 2 miles wide, and 9 miles from the coast of
main Ireland. There are only 800 inhabitants. Oh yeah, and the aran
sweater was born here.
The touristy bit: I was overrun by
horse-and-buggy combinations when I arrived to the island. But when I wanted
to use one, they were all gone! (So I took a walk instead.)
I had lunch at a burger bar, I constantly tripped over
Japanese tourists, and everybody wanted to hire or sell me something.
The real attraction:
for me, a big part of the day was going alone to Inishmoor. Being
(picture taken by automatic), especially on
a very remote place
on a small island was special to me.
The Ragus was also good. "One hour spectacular show of
Irish traditional music, song and dance". And as I like Riverdance,
well, I liked this as well.
