BLASKET ISLANDS - WRITING IN THE SAND

Take A Closer Look

Out on the very edge of Europe, off the Dingle Peninsula, lie the mystical Blasket Islands, a small archipelago renowned for its storytellers. After many years of hardship and emigration, the last inhabitants left in 1953, and today, you can celebrate the story of the Blasket Islanders and their unique literary tradition at Ionad an Bhlascaoid Mhóir (The Blasket Centre) or for the more adventurous take a boat trip to the big island.
