Inishmurray Island Heritage Trail

This island is without a doubt ’the’ hidden gem of the whole of Sligo and this part of the Wild Atlantic Way. It is wild and peaceful.

Its wild birds, flora and an incredibly well preserved ancient monastic site dating to the 6th century AD make this island very special indeed. Explore it with us! We’ll explain the settlement history here, the island traditions of its poeple who finally had to leave it and we’ll show you the amazing little monastery that still stands today. 


Two churches survive within, one of them so tiny, you could never imagine how mass was said inside! There are beehive huts, altars, inscribed crosses and unusual ’cursing’ stones here to name but a few sites of interest...

On your way by boat to Inishmurray, you might be lucky enough to see wild marine life such as seals, gulls and albatrosses. This makes for a fun and very interesting day out and is suitable for all ages. Please bring water, a sandwich and sun screen!
