Inishkea South Island
Located approximately 4km west of the peninsula, this island is the most visited of the three. Although there is evidence of habitation on the island dating back 5,000 years, it has been abandoned since the 1930s, and its pristine white sandy beaches are now home to seabirds including barnacles, Atlantic grey seals, ruined houses, a variety of wildflowers and the remains of a once thriving whaling station on Rusheen Island, just off the coast of Iniskea South.
Inishkea North Island
On the North Island, which is less frequently visited, you’ll find the ancient remains of the ruins of St. Colmcille’s Church, the Bailey Mór, Bailey Beag and Bailey Dóite, small circular areas which in the past contained beehive huts, used by monks in the Early Christian period. Remains on the island suggest Inishkea must have been an important centre in the Early Christian period.
