Clare Island (or Oielean Chilara in Irish) is a mountainous island outside of Westport which guards the entrance to Clew Bay in County Mayo.  It is the famous resident of pirate queen Grainne O’Malley (once also belonging to the O’Malley family during the Middle Ages) and is home to 125 residents today. 

The island has plenty of fauna and flora, while between the years of 1909-1911, an exhaustive biological survey of the island showed that it is home to rare bird species and botanical plants.  The island also has a lighthouse, which has long been its prominent landmark since it was first established in 1806. 

Clare Island is accessible by daily ferry services from Roonagh Pier near Louisburgh, costing about 15 EUR per person.  The island also has a hotel, a few bed and breakfasts as well as a yoga and meditation center and is ideal for weekend trips away from neighboring Westport.
