Description :
This beautiful little island lies 4 km west of The Mullet peninsula, beyond Belmullet (Béal an Mhuirthead). Abandoned since the 1930s, this tranquil spot is now home to seabirds and grey seals, ruined houses, wildflowers and the remains of its once thriving whaling station.
The 30 minute boat ride out is a pleasure in itself, as we look out for dolphins and more. Walking on the island is taking a step back in time, as we recount how the islanders once lived and what caused them to abandon their homes. A trip to Iniskea is a truly fascinating, peaceful and memorable day out, filled with stories of the past.

Please allow around 90 minutes to get to Blacksod pier (signposted An Fód Dubh) from Castlebar, Westport or Ballina. You will drive through Bangor Erris and then Belmullet (Béal an Mhuirthead). The boat, which has a capacity of 12 passengers, leaves at 10.00 and typically returns to the pier around 17.00.
