We’ll tell you how the Irish famine decimated the island population. 

If you ever wonder where Coney Island got his name, we’ll tell you a story about that along the way...it involves rabbits and sea captains!

This island has inspired poets such as W.B Yeats, travel writers and musicians in the past and still inspires anyone who visits! There is a tranquillity and magic about it that you will not experience anywhere else. Wild flowers grow here and cattle graze peacefully in the rolling fields.

Enquire with us about getting a boat across to Coney. It’s a nice way to travel (this will be additional cost)
