Great Blasket Island - Ireland Highlights:
Rugged uninhabited island, Scenic cliffs
Great Blasket is the largest of the Blasket Islands, a group of seven rocky islands that form part of County Kerry in south-western Ireland. They are situated 8 km (5 miles) off Slea Head at the tip of the Dingle peninsula at the entrance to Dingle Bay. The islands have been called "the last parish before America" because of their westerly position, but today they are uninhabited.

Great Blasket was the site of the castle of Piaras Ferriter, the last Irish chieftain to surrender to Oliver Cromwell in the mid-17th century. The islands are a popular destination for tourists because of their scenic beauty, with cliffs on Great Blasket reaching 293 m (961 ft) in height. Atlantic gales can bring treacherous weather, and two ships of the Spanish Armada foundered there in 1588.
