Clare Island, located just off Westport beside Achill Island, used to
be the home of Granuaile, Grace OMally, the pirate queen. It contains
her castle and an old abbey. It is also a great location for hill walking.
Inish Bofin, located off the coast of Connemara out from Cleggan, it contains
an old barracks owned by Cromwell who set up there to try a defeat Granuaile.
The Island has the largest natural sheltered harbor in Ireland, it also
offers good walking and safe beaches to swim in. We also run trips to
Inish Turk located right in the middle of Clare Island and Inish Bofin.
It is a good island for walking, diving and fishing.
No matter what level of diver you are, Islands West has the experience
