Trip To Inishkea South

Your trip begins at Blacksod Pier. Enjoy the experience of Blacksod Bay as we head for Inishkea. Your sailing to the island takes you past the picturesque village of Surgeview and the Islands of Blackrock, Duvillaun Beag & Mór, Geachta and Léim ar Reithe. Laying just beyond this, Inishkea South’s navigation towers and cottages come into view as we make our way to the Island.


Once on the island, you will be given the choice to embark on a guided tour of the island, with an island descendent. You will be swept away on a spellbinding walking tour of the island, where you learn about the rich history of Inishkea and get to visit the school, whaling station, nunnery, cilin, 5th century stone slabs and various monastic sites.

Your tour finishes with a trek up the Alt Mór, where the Inishkea navigation tower, cliffs and St. Derbhile’s holy well are located.


Once your guided tour is complete, you will have lots of time to enjoy a relaxing lunch, go for a swim or furtherly explore the island! For our little passengers, we offer a exciting treasure hunt filled with puzzles and riddles to be solved and a small treasure rewarded on completion!
