Stayed a week in a cottage called island cottage. The island is beautiful and peaceful. The views are constantly changing and to be cut off at high tide, Devine tranquility.

Beautiful place nice to wander round the island and explore but think the national trust have ruined the castle and priory but charging over ridiculous amounts £5.40 for priory and £7.20 for castle each person !!!! Talking about making profit! We didn't go in to either and still enjoyed the day Make sure you visit the wine place to pick... More

Returned for a visit ( last time was like 20 years ago ) and it does seem to have stayed basically the same. There is an air of excitement about accessing this as the causeway is only in use for so many hours and then cut off ( mega important that you be sensible about this - it can cost... More

The whole island is peaceful and tranquil. It really is something special and beautiful. The Abbey is a wonderful ruin and has a small museum very well laid out museum that gives the history of the island. The church is also incredibly special and glimpses of Celtic Christianity are evident throughout the church. A great place to learn about the... More

This was our second visit and there seemed to be many more places open than there were previously (but that was in October several years ago so off season). The little streets are very quaint and we had a lovely walk out to the castle. Unfortunately it wasn't open for some reason and the notice saying this was at the... More

So pleased we went. Family of 4 with dog, who was kept on a lead at all times but who was very welcome to visit. I was the keenest out of the 4 to visit but we all loved it. The drive over the causeway is dramatic. I had thought the island could be a real tourist trap with lots... More
