Island hopping Irish style


Around Ireland is an abundance of Islands that need to be visited. While we know about most of them, there are a few that have gone unnoticed in terms of places to visit. Have a holiday with a difference this year and go island hopping across Ireland

Inishtrahull, Co. Donegal
Located six miles from Malin Head, this island is free from any one, apart from wild deer and eider duck, so you are sure to have some peace and quiet.

Inishturk Island Co. Mayo
It may be pretty isolated but true to its Irishness, it is home to a gorgeous GAA pitch. Head here if you want to indulge in a bit of diving.

Heir Island, Co. Cork
This picturesque island is located in Roaringwater Bay and is great if you want to go exploring. Foodie will love the Cottage restaurant.

The Blasket Islands, Co. Kerry
The last people living on the island left in 1953 but it is home to lots of wildlife including seals and birds. Located at the tip of the Dingle Peninsula, the island is perfect for campers.
