Headed Up Cottage Road, Inishmore

View from a horse trap on the Aran Islands, Galway Bay, Ireland

Enjoying travel on a horse trap, a type of carriage, on Inishmore (Inis Mór), the largest Aran Island in Galway Bay we headed up Cottage Road from Kilronan, the main island settlement.  It was there we embarked from the ferry, hired the driver, his horse drawn trap.  Our destination an iron age fort, Dun Aengus (Dún Aonghasa, the Irish language name) and the sights along the way. 

Headed up Cottage Road, I captured this view of dry stone walls and homes against the May sky over the shoulder of our horse.

  1. My son is a springboard diver. On our last visit to Ireland, two summers past, a spot called “The Worm Hole” a natural ocean basin etched into the cliffs and used by cliff divers was on our bucket list. But alas it was not to be. The Irish Sea was uncooperative that day snd we could not make the journey…until our next attempt, your beautiful photo will suffice.
