Please be aware that this stay is not suited to everyone. We ask that guests have have a level of mobility and fitness when maneuvering on and off boats. Boarding the boat in Dunquin can be tricky if there is ANY swell, so PLEASE make sure you are able on your feet and feel comfortable hopping on and off the vessel. Please pack light as you will need to carry and lift bags on and off boat and up the Island (we will offer assistance as much we can) .

Landing on the Island is also physical. Guests must carry overnight bags up the rocky steps  and grassy tracks to the cottages where they will be met by the Caretakers. Check in is at 2pm so please take note if you have an early sailing your cottage may not be ready on arrival. 

Weather and sea conditions are VERY changeable. Sailings times WILL VARY in the event of bad weather and change of boat schedules. PLEASE BE FLEXIBLE.

Tide, sea conditions and booking scheduels dictate our sailing times, please be flexible. If times do not suit and guests need to travel earlier/later we may be able to arrange alternative one way ticket transfers , however additional charges  of €20 pp will incur.

Cancellations will not be approved or refunded in the event a sailing time does not suit.


To maintain this beautiful Island, we ask all guests treat it the same as any other pristine location and take all belongings (including rubbish & recycling) with you on departure. In extreme situations, if the rubbish is organised perfectly into general, food, recycling and bottle waste, we can dispose at a small charge. Please take waste and rubbish into account when packing for your stay. Please contact us for further details.  


Unfortunately, we no longer allow pets to stay in the Island Cottages.
