The smallest of the islands is characterised by its distinctive charm.
 
This island is close to the Burren with its unusual eclectic mix of colour and the Cliffs of Moher clearly visible in all its panoramic splendor.

The Island itself also has the true feel of a classical isolated fishing village.

From the pier you are greeted with a pristine carpeted white sandy beach facing clear crystal turquoise water and plenty of fishing boats, their nets, and fisherman returning at the end of the day with their catch.
