Nice place with a lot of history but on the unguided tour the stay was too long (from 12pm till 2.30). We thought we could get some lunch there at the 'cafe' but they did not have ANY food except crisps which were €1 a bag! So only got tea and crisps for lunch! Could easily be a great place for lunches but no thought has gone into it at all and there isn't enough on the island to stay for over two hours. Also the hike from the boat to the 'cafe' and prison was uphill and would be very hard for the elderly and children. Also there is only one toilet at the 'cafe' which is far from the boat and the rest of the island so people needing to use this again nearer the end of the visit would have to go all the way back to the 'cafe'! We (and another couple) couldn't wait to get off the island!
