Inch Island
Inch Island, Co. Donegal
Inch Island is a small island connected to the mainland by a bridge, in Lough Swilly, in County Donegal.

Inch Island is a birdwatcher's paradise. It is home to an important population of migratory birds and wintering waterfowl. Three species, whooper swan, Greenland white fronted goose and greylag goose, occur in numbers of international importance. This is the area where the swans make their Irish landfall in autumn on their return from breeding grounds in Iceland and there are some excellent vantage points from which to view these majestic birds.

The ruins of Inch Castle, built in 1454, can be found on the southwest side of the island.
