Inchydoney Island , County Cork

At the head of Clonakilty Bay is a peninsula known as Inchydoney Island , and so called because up to 1845 it was cut off from the mainland at high tide. The high tide no longer rises high enough to isolate Inchydoney , and two causeways now link the ‘island’ to the mainland , giving easy access to its sandy beaches.

Inchydoney Island is a hidden gem and worth a visit on your Ireland tours.
