Great way to spend a few hours and learn a bit more about our history. Really nice, small island with a great tour guide to fill you in on it all.

My family and I had a fantastic trip to Scattery Island yesterday. The ferry over was great, going through the lock was a great experience that the children loved. The island itself is beautiful. We had an excellent tour guide who told us all about the churches, round tower, lighthouse, holy well and so much more. We could have happily spent a few more hours on the island and we will definitely go back to explore again. We would highly recommend this trip.

Had a wonderful trip to Scattery Island yesterday . A short enjoyable boat trip with lovely staff. This historical island off the coast of Clare near the town of Kilrush is well worth a visit. Special thanks to Martina and Irene and all the team at Scattery Island Tours for their infinite patience and understanding, for the delayed boat departure, to accommodate us. We got there by the skin of our teeth! Thanks to the wonderful and knowledgeable tour guide Ruth for her excellent history lesson. All in all a lovely experience from start to finish. A must do visit.

The guided tour was very good with a general overview of the monastic history of the Island. We were on the longer visit - 4hrs - and we walked the circumference of the Island when the guided tour finished. We had a picnic on the route and enjoyed the views. Walking on the stony beach was hard and I would recommend wearing proper walking boots.
