Inishturk is a small, beautiful island located 9 miles off the west coast of Mayo. It rises boldly from the wild North Atlantic in wall-like cliffs to the northwest and steep hills to the north. Only 5km by 2.5km in size, the island offers plenty to do and see; hill walking, scuba diving, angling, fishing, swimming and boat trips to neighbouring islands. Historical places of interest include: Port An Dun, the remains of a 9th Century fort; The Old Church, dating back to the 16th Century; The Present Graveyard; and The Signal Tower, rising 722ft above sea level. Community Club open daily May to September, where during summer weekends you can enjoy ‘ceol agus craic’ with some of the finest musicians in Ireland.
Ferry to the island takes approximately 50 minutes
