I will be in Ireland next week (January) and was thinking of taking my elderly mom to Inishmore for one night. She's a hardy soul, so I think would not be bothered by rugged weather, but she also walks with a cane. So I was thinking I'd try to get a place to stay by the ferry so we don't have to go too far, but also give us access to town so we head to a pub or two in town in the evening.
Is this a crazy plan, or should we try it some other time during the summer? Can one take the ferry in the winter? And any recommendation of a place to stay in town close to the ferry and some pubs?
