Inis Oirr / Inisheer is our wonderful island home. It is also a long-lived Atlantic community in constant celebration of it’s unique culture and modern ways.
This is the blend that shapes who we are on Inis Oirr / Inisheer today – not from elemental remoteness, but from a wonderful engagement we perennially enjoy with all worldwide who travel and visit us.
This is the essence of our Island life today – a cosmopolitan place where everything seems in change, and yet nothing seems in change. Recognised for a warm and outgoing spirit, and graced with a welcome that extends beyond our island waves, we delight in the company of all who visit, and with little ado, join that endless stream of island chat and caint. With only six surnames among the locals, most given names are highly descriptive.
The island is approx 3 kms long and 2 kms wide.
Come visit, stay a while and be enchanted by the island’s deep-rooted mythology, its devotion to traditional culture and unique landscapes.
