"Rent a Bike" Inisheer Transportation Tip by pure1942
Inisheer Transportation: 6 reviews and 14 photos
Better than any of the above suggestions is renting a bike. Cycling around the narrow roads and tracks of the island is the best way of seeing the beautiful landscape and historic sights and renting them is easy. There is a bike hire place near the pier on Inis Óirr and rental is €10 per day.
Generally the bikes are in good nick although they tend to have really hard saddles!
Please remember to cycle on the left hand side of the road. Despite the small number of cars, it is still important to obey good cycling practice on the islands. The otherwise friendly locals do give cyclists a stern glare if they have to stop or slow down to allow cyclists to pull in from the middle or right hand side of the road. It is also very annoying for other cyclists you have to cycle between other cyclists or swerve away from cyclists incorrectly using the right hand side coming against you. Also cycle in single file and not abreast as this can prevent cars and locals from passing you and also impedes other cyclists wishing to overtake.
