Inch Island

Inch Island, a small island in Lough Swilly of approximately 5 square miles, is the winter home of an internationally significant population of Whooper Swans, Greenland White Fronted Geese and Greylag Geese.

The island  is now connected to the mainland by a causeway. There are the ruins of an old 15th century castle built on a cliff edge on the island which was the home of the O’Doherty Clan of Inishowen. (Note:The castle is on private property, please seek permission locally if you wish to get close to it).
