Mini Bus Tours
Guided tours are provided by some of the island's local characters. These tours can be very entertaining and are well worth it. The tours can last anything up to two and a half hours and prices start at 10.00 per person.
Two minibuses will always be waiting on the pier to meet passengers. The rest line up at the end of the pier near the tourist office. As the minibuses operate a rota among themselves, we do not recommend individual minibus drivers.

Pony and Trap
Traditional, leisurely and with a certain magical feel to it, this is the ideal way to travel around the island.
There are a number of pony and traps on the island. As with the minibuses, we do not recommend individual operators.

Walking
Being only 14km in length and 3km wide, Inismore provides a walker's paradise with many historical and hideaway spots to be discovered at the walkers' leisure.

Public Bus
There is a public bus on the island but most of the mini-bus tour operators act as a taxi service as well. Most premises accept credit cards.
