Omey Island in Claddaghduff is accessible at low tide every day by crossing a firm sandy beach, either in a car or on foot. Simply follow the direction poles in the sand that mark the way across.  Be sure to check the tide timetable beforehand to ensure you won’t get stranded if the tide comes in!

Omey Island has a wealth of antiquities. The ruins of Feichin’s Church, a medieval church built on a 7th century Christian settlement lie close to the north coast. The church was covered in sand until 1981 and it is surrounded by the remains of a semi-sunken village that was wiped out during the Famine. St Feichin’s Holy Well can also be found to the west, just above a rocky inlet. The island is now largely abandoned, with some part-time residents during the summer months.


From Claddaghduff travel over the beach to Omey Island on a low tide and the land will be at the end on the left-hand side marked by our “For Sale” boards.

Asking Price: €95,000
