15 min boat journey..only 160 people living on Island... one shop and two eating places...only downside there was no one to guide you once off boat and everything had to be done by foor or bike.

They got as there as they promised; easy to book in advance. Not much in the way of service in Roonagh or at Clare Island, but they were friendly and helpful.

This is one of the nicest islands of the coast of Ireland, people are very friendly and the scenery and beaches are breathless. Well worth a day trip or a nights camping.

Hi, There is no street address, but it is at Roonagh Pier. There are signs to Roonagh from Westport and also coming from south of Roonagh. Just google it and you will see it on a map. It is a bit out in the country.
