The South Pier Looped Walk is an easy to moderate 2 to 3 hour (7.2km) walk on Inis Meain or Inishmaan Island, the second largest of the Aran Islands of the west coast of Co. Galway., Ireland. These stunning islands are home to some great people, attractions and activities to keep you busy for weeks!

Along the route you pass Synge’s Chair, a stunning viewing point at the edge of a sheer limestone cliff.

Dún Chonchúir which is a spectacular stone fort.

Shortly afterwards, pass Teampaill na Seacht Mac Rí on your right. This church ruin was an important place of pilgrimage in the past and the saint is said to be buried beside the church.
