Enjoy the unspoilt beauty of Scattery Island, home to a monastic settlement founded in the early 6th century.
There are the ruins of six churches and one of the highest Round Towers in Ireland, with the unusual feature of it’s door at ground level.
The main church on the island is Teampall Naomh Mhuire. There is an effigy of a bishop’s head on the outside of the east window of the Cathedral believed to be that of St. Senan.
An exhibition of the history of the island is housed in the visitor reception building, which is situated near the pier.
