The Saltee Islands are one of the most recognizable landmarks of the south Wexford coastline. Just 5 km from Kilmore Quay, the islands are home to an array of seabirds such as puffins, gannets, guillemots, razorbills, fulmars, manx shearwater, gulls as well as many other species of wildlife. The gannet colony on the cliffs at the Southwest corner of the island is one of the three main colonies found in Ireland. A wonderfully wild landscape, the islands are home to a wide variety of flora and fauna. Bluebells cover the islands in early summer. The path from the landing point leads you to Prince Michael’s throne and obelisk. Old stone walls dot the landscape, a reminder to times past when the islands were farmed by its inhabitants. A Special Area of Conservation, the islands are a unique place to visit and perfect for an island adventure.
