Things to do

Inis Meáin (Inish Maan) is a quiet, peaceful and natural place, ideal for bringing a young family, or for keen walkers, divers, nature lovers and generally for people looking to de-stress, reconnect and recharge for a few days.

It is also home to one of the stronger Gaeltachts and offers a place to converse, learn and practice Irish in everyday life.
