Description

If you are into bird watching, then Roman Island is your best bet while in Ireland.  One of the best watching spots near Westport, the island (known by locals as “The Point”) is the most westerly point of the Quay and marks the other reach of neighboring Westport Harbor. 

The island is home to a Heritage Center as well as a fish-food processing plant (formerly owned by B.P.).  Some of Roman Island’s main exports include grain, coal, hardware and livestock, and was once known as a vibrant and busy port during the turn of the 20th century.  Today, there are twice-weekly passenger sailings to Glasgow and Liverpool.  Those who keep their eyes well open can spot otters who are often seen playing with their prey on the shoreline.  Little Grebes, Great Northern Divers, Red-breasted Mergansers, Wigeon, Teal, Shelduck and Mallard can also be spotted.
