Access to Trá Inis Oírr is via the R743 and there is no difficulty entering onto the beach. The area of the beach is approximately 0.01km2 and the length is approximately 300m.
There are a number of ways to reach the Island including by boat either directly from the Galway City dockside, Ros an Mhíl (Rossaveal) in Connemara or from Doolin in County Clare. The island can also be reached by air from Connemara Airport in Indreabhán (Inveran).
It is a popular beach for swimming, walking, water sports or just relaxing on long warm island summer days. In contrast, the shorelines of Inis Oirr are predominantly rocky and karst. Look out for the magic of low tide rocky pools.
Enjoy spectacular views of the Clare coastline and surrounding countryside. Traditional farm practices have helped maintain the high ecological status of the island.
