Great Blasket Island Experience – Unique Boat Tours and Accommodation.

The Great Blasket Island is a remote Island located off the Dingle Peninsula. With over 1,100 acres of unspoiled largely mountainous terrain, the Great Blasket Island is approximately 4 miles long by 1/2 mile wide. Now classified as a Special Area of Conservation, it is home to an abundance of wildlife and fauna, the Great Blasket Island is thriving with Irish history and life.  Take one of our Great Blasket Island Boat Tours or overnight in one of the Island self catering cottages and immerse yourself in a unique Irish Experience.

The Great Blasket Island is one of the most remote parts of the Irish Language Speaking areas of Corca Dhuibhne. Although deserted since 1953 it is famous for the abundance of literature produced by the Irish speaking inhabitants who will live on forever through the documentation by them of the extraordinary details of their ordinary lives
