    Innisheer is the smallest of the Aran islands. It's one of the longest continuously occupied areas in Europe. The island has been inhabited for over 7,000 years. The grazing land was created by stacking stones into walls while sand and kelp were brought from the sea, creating soil for the grass.

    Doolan is the launch point for the ferry and the Twin Otter airplane, the two ways to the island.

    The streets of Innisheer are tiny and they are very few cars. Horse and buggy is how the tourists are shuttled about, while the locals stick to walking and bicycles.

    No cars, large crowds, if they have beer I am there. Good shots looks like a lovely place to visit.
