Video: Inishbofin island, Co Galway

"A rare mix of peace and tranquillity and a busy social and artistic scene"

'A beautiful island off the northwest coast of Co Galway with several wide sandy beaches and rich archaeology, Inishbofin has that rare mix of peace and tranquillity, a fragile environment, and a busy social and artistic scene.'

 

“A beautiful island off the northwest coast of Co Galway with several wide sandy beaches and rich archaeology. Inishbofin has that rare mix of peace and tranquillity, a fragile environment, and a busy social and artistic scene for those who seek it out.

“Within minutes of disembarking from a busy ferry, people of all ages and nationalities melt into the landscape. Inishbofin’s economy relies very heavily on visitors, but there is a natural warmth.”
