Inis Mor Seaweed

On Inis Mor (one of three Aran Islands), the Gaelic-speaking Islanders have used seaweed to make soil over the barren limestone paved island for hundreds of years.

Meet your host, Gabriel, a native of Inis Mor, who will introduce you to the language and ways of the Islanders. Take a walk by the seashore with local seaweed harvester Mairtin and learn how to identify seaweed, the properties of the seaweed, its minerals and nutritional and healing benefits.

You are invited to Mairtin’s family home, the impressive ‘Round House’ overlooking the historic seven churches with views over the Atlantic Ocean. Watch a demonstration on the uses and versatility of seaweed and enjoy a seaweed tasting including scones, potato bread, salads and a surprise dessert.

Continue to Gabriel’s goat’s cheese farm, meet the goats, see the cheese making process and enjoy a cheese tasting including cheese infused with seaweed. Gabriel will then take you on a tour of the island to hidden beauty spots and the prehistoric stone fort at Dun Aonghasa, perched spectacularly on a cliff overlooking the Atlantic. Optional picnic lunch at Dun Aonghasa.
