PRIVATE ISLAND OFF THE WEST COST OF IRELAND.
The beautiful and spectacularly located Dorinish Island is one of the most westerly of Clew Bay’s reputed 365 islands. The island provides the most exceptional views from every aspect. To the west is the dramatic silhouette of Clare Island with the Atlantic Ocean extending beyond, to the north are Inishgort Lighthouse and the Nephin Mountains, to the east across the many drumlin islands Westport Quay can be glimpsed in the distance and overlooking the island to the south is Croagh Patrick Mountain.
"I hope we're a nice old couple living off the coast of Ireland or something like that - looking at our scrapbook of madness."

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL VIEW I EVER SAW IN THE WORLD!
"It forms an event in one's life to have seen that place, so beautiful is it, and so unlike all other beauties that I know of"
/ William Makepeace Thackeray
1842 English writer on Clew Bay
PERFECT PLACE TO GET AWAY FROM IT ALL
"We often discussed the idea of building a cottage there. It was so beautiful, so tranquil, yet so isolated, it seemed a perfect place to get away from it all".
/ Yoko Ono
