It’s a spot renowned for its glorious views and for giving a sense of disconnect and wellbeing.

We are beyond thrilled and honored that the Great Blasket Experience boat tours and accommodation has been listed in the Irish Independents ‘Ireland’s Coastal Treasures’ magazine, along with the fantastic Lesley and Gordon’s own Blasket Island feature. We think our little Peninsula is the best place on earth and all the hardworking people and business that make Dingle and surrounding towns world class have really set the standard. Thank you so so much to all, we are truly grateful and delighted 😊@indo.ie_travel ————- #greatblasketislandexperience #anblascaodmór #blasketislands #travelireland #dingle #irishindependent
The Blasket Islands are an uninhabited group of islands which can be seen from the Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry, and known to everyone who went to school in Ireland as the setting for Peig Sayers memoirs.
The government evacuated the residents to the mainland in 1953 because of the remoteness of the island for its inhabitants. Many of those who lived there settled in Dingle Peninsula, within view of their former home.
