Aran Island

The Seal Colony

The Seal Colony is one of the most popular attractions on Inis Mor Island. It is located on the coastal road 10 minutes cycle before Kilmurvey beach. The advantage of cycling here is that you can meander and be at one with nature.

On a good day, in this natural habitat with a favorable tide, you will come across numerous seals bathing. The scene is enchanting. Adjacent to the seal colony is a small lake that has wild swans, ducks lurking in the reeds as well as many rare birds. This is a must-see for bird watchers.

The seal colony is located on the coastal road, around 15 minutes cycle from Aran Islands Bike Hire
