Inishmore is the largest of the Aran Islands in Galway Bay off the west coast of Ireland.

The island is famous for its strong Irish culture, loyalty to the Irish language, and a wealth of Pre-Christian and Christian ancient sites including Dún Aonghasa.

Dún Aonghasa was described as “the most magnificent barbaric monument in Europe” by Victorian-era archaeologist George Petrie.

The island is an extension of the Burren and among the finest examples of Glacio-Karst landscapes in the world.

The island plays host to Ted Fest each year. Established in 2004 it is a celebration of the television sitcom Father Ted.
