The shores of Inis Mór have become famous for their well established home to colony’s of seals.
With a favourable tide you will sight numerous seals, up to maybe 15-20 bathing on the rocks in their natural habitat. It can be quite an enchanting and beautiful sight.
The seals are grey in colour and can often weigh up to 507lbs (230kg). They are both calm and quiet. In high tide the seals often hunt for fish such as Salmon and Pollock.
In recent years, the seal colony has become popular with many tourists looking to catch a glimpse of the rare sight.
