- Show full map
Over the centuries the islanders have picked up the stones which covered the ground and piled them creating dry walls in order to have usable spaces where you can now find animals like horses and cows.
The walls extend for a total lenght of about 1,500 miles.
On the eastern coast of Inisheer Island, the smallest of the three, there is also the wrackage of a cargo ship.
The islands are reachable by ferry from Galway and Dingle.
