SwimmingWalking SightseeingHeritageDiscovery and Signature Points
Inishturk Island rises boldly from the Atlantic Ocean, off the scenic coast of County Mayo. See the soaring sea cliffs to the north west and steep hills to the north, on which stands the ruins of the old signal tower.

Visit beautiful Inishturk, a small island off the west coast of Mayo between Inishbofin and Clare Island. Discover the old Napoleonic signal tower, the highest point on the island and check out the epic views from Achill to Connemara.

Inhabited since 4000 BC, explore the island's rugged pathways and trails with a hike across the sea cliffs to spectacular Dromore Head. Take a deep sea diving trip or hire a boat and journey to one of the neighbouring islands.

On the eastern side of Inishturk, find the secluded beaches of Tranaun and Curran, swim in the clear blue waters and stroll along the golden sand. Watch the sun go down and soak up the views, locals say they're the best in all of Europe. For the full island experience, head to the lively community centre, join in with the set dancing and round the day off with a creamy pint.
