A trip to remember

Come with us and explore

There are two walking trails to explore with Scattery Island Tours. The shorter orange route features the islands ecclesiastical history and the more challenging red route takes you to the village street, lighthouse and the artillery battery at the far side of the island. This route offers a more rugged terrain and visitors will need suitable walking/hiking shoes and clothing to complete it. There are also several areas on the island where you can enjoy a picnic. Come and explore with Scattery Island Tours.

Mystical journey

Steeped in legends and folklore

According to legend, Scattery Island was once inhabited by a monster, that killed anyone who dared to step ashore. An angel flew Saint Senan to the Island, where he fought a great battle defeating the beast. In the Irish language, the island is known as ‘Inís Cathaigh’, meaning ‘the Island of the Battle’.
