Archaeological Field Trip to Inishbofin

Inishbofin, the largest island in a small archipelago is known for its stunning landscapes and vibrant traditional music scene. It has a rich history dating back to the Bronze Age and served as a refuge for monks in the 8th century. The island has endured Viking raids, maintained connections with Anglo-Saxon England, and witnessed conflicts between Gaelic lordships. It features a natural harbor protected by a 17th-century fortress. Inishbofin’s rugged coastline features impressive sea cliffs, caves, and diverse marine life. The day’s itinerary includes guided walks suitable for moderately fit individuals, with participants advised to come prepared with appropriate outdoor gear.
