Escape to an Offshore Island in Autumn

Looking for more peace and quiet but still want to take the most of what Inishbofin has to offer? Autumn is the perfect time for an offshore island getaway on Inishbofin.

During this season, Inishbofin offers a variety of top experiences to make the most of your visit. Attend our lively Set Dancing Weekend at the end of September to immerse yourself in traditional Irish culture, or explore the island’s natural beauty through walking, birdwatching, cycling, and horse riding. For those seeking adventure, try swimming, sea angling, or even chartering a RIB for an exhilarating coastal exploration.

To fully enjoy your Autumn island getaway, we recommend bringing hiking boots, warm waterproof clothing, and a torch for evening walks under the starry sky. Keep in mind that some places may close in October, so it’s advisable to book in advance to secure your accommodation and activities.
