Pocket Guide: Inishmore Dun Ducathair Hotels

Dun Ducathair is a large stone fort on the isle of Inis Meáin. Due to erosion, these fascinating ruins now sit on a rocky promontory that stretches out from the island into the sea. The name means “black rock” and comes from the dark coloured limestone that is typical of this side of the island of Inis Meáin. The remains of the fort are the thick outer wall and the traces of small inner dwelling houses. The date of the fort’s construction hasn’t been established, but is thought to belong to a prehistoric age.

Inis Meáin

Inis Meáin is one of the three main Aran Islands in Galway Bay. Inis Meáin is the quietest and least populated of the three islands. If you’re looking for a little peace away from the summer tourist crowds, it’s an ideal destination. Much of Inis Meáin’s population speak Irish as a first language, and the island is a stronghold of traditional Irish culture.

The island is easily accessed from Galway City, with ferries leaving all year round. When you plan a trip to Inis Meáin to visit Dun Ducathair, then staying in Galway City means you can have access to all the amenities of a bustling urban life, while having quick access to the quiet haven of the Aran Isles.

And if the base for your trip is in Galway City, you’ll find plenty of meal options to choose from. Expect everything from fine dining to warming traditional Irish fare.

Of course, if food is your thing, then you’ll probably want a hotel that reflects that.
