The Seal Colony of Inis Mór

There are several seals that call the shores of Inis Mór their home. The best place to catch a glimpse of these creatures is on the north side of the island.

The well established seal colony on Inis Mór is a huge tourist attraction for adults and children alike. These beautiful creatures, grey in colour, are calm and quiet. If you make your way past Kilronon down towards the beach of Portmurvy, you are likely to see them sunning themselves on the rocks. Depending on the tide you may see an average of 15-20 seals, which is a truly beautiful sight. At high tide they hunt for fish such as Pollock and Salmon. These are big creatures, weighing up to 507 lbs!

A lot of tourists visit the seals via bike or bus tour, this is the perfect spot for a picnic! A highly recommended activity.
