The only practical way to get to this island is the strangest exciting cable car ride because the ferry tends to come just a few times a year. There is only one car and it no longer transports the cows we were told. You have to check the times of operation because the operators have lunch breaks .We hiked extensively on this beautiful island and the views and photo opportunities were quite rewarding. It is simply gorgeous. It has fascinating history - read a little about it to understand it - it helped us to appreciate it. It is very depopulated with I believe just one family still living there. There are two options to hike it - the hill trail or the road and one can switch from one to another. The road is much easier so choose the mountainous trails to walk to the end of the island and come back on the road. There are sheep everywhere, old ruins including old church and cemetery. The Irish have a sense of humor like no other so you will see in the middle of literally nowhere a bus stop. One of the remarkable landmarks is the observation tower. You should make an effort to walk to the end of the island - it is spectacular.
