When you arrive in Inis Mór, you have a lot of different ways to explore this island. Most people will choose for walking or renting a bike.

When you walk you have to consider that it takes you a few hours to go to Dun Aonghasa and that you probably don?t visit much of the island.

When you rent a bike, you have more time to explore the island and you see more things then the walkers and the people who go with the traps or minibuses.

The other options are the pony?s what the locals call a ?trap?. A local is driving with you in this trap towards the main attractions.

Then you have also the mini busses that bring you also to the same main attractions. When you don?t have the whole day these are maybe the best solutions, but the bikes give you a lot of freedom to explore this beautiful island.

When you leave the boot, you will see those traps and mini busses waiting to collect their passengers, just choose one if you want to go with them. When you walk pass them, you will find the bike rental offices.
