Went on a day trip to the Great Saltee on the last of August 2011. The weather was perfect.
We booked our trip with the boatman, Declan Bates [--] on the Sunday previous.
Arrived at Kilmore Quay on the Wednesday morning for departure @11 am. Three adults and two children. Found Declan to be very helpful with the buggies etc. getting on and off the boat to the dinghy as also were a German couple who were also visiting the island. The Saltees are beautiful and well worth a visit. There are NO FACILITIES on the island, so you have to bring everything with you, food, water etc. Bring your rubbish home with you! Cliffs are steep so be careful, got nice photos of bird colonies and seals, plus great views.
