Inis Bó Finne means "Island of the white cow". Completely unspoilt, it has a beautiful coastline that varies between white sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs, hidden caves, and a striking sea arch. Coastal nature is rich in this rugged Atlantic outpost.
The Island’s meadows are home to the endangoured corncrake and a community of rabbits who bound about the hillsides. The south east of the island has an atmospheric cluster of village houses that were last home to a permanent island community in the 1970s.
Spectactular views from the island take in mountains including the unique white face of An tEaragail Mountain, and seascapes from Cnoc Fola (Bloody Foreland) to distant Toraigh (Tory Island), to the tip of Horn Head. For those who want to enjoy a day or two’s relaxation, a comfortable hostel awaits.
Sailings operate seasonal from Machaire Uí Rabhartaigh
