General Advice for visiting the island
Eco tour routes may vary due to weather conditions and sea mammal sightings.
It is recommended that sensible foot wear is worn and warm clothing is carried as weather conditions can change unexpectedly.
All boats may be cancelled at short notice due to unexpected weather changes.
There is no shop or cafe on the island, so it is advisable to bring a picnic or pack lunch
We also recommend a visit to the Blasket heritage centre located in Dunquin village
