This island is higher and more rugged than its neighbour, Inishvickillane. Tomás Ó Criomhthain records in An t-Oileánach (The Islandman) how the well-known melody Port na bPúcaí magically came to one of the Daly family living on Inishnabro. This story in turn inspired Seamus Heaney's poem The Given Note.   Inis na Bró is the 1423th highest summit in Ireland. Inis na Bró is the second most southerly summit in the Dingle West area. It's also the third most westerly summit in .

The hidden entrance to Inis na Bro
by wicklore  9 Sep 2012
As Conor74 has pointed out, the access point for Inis na Bro is rather startling. Behind the rugged and sharp rocks that ring the island lies a tiny hidden cove, accessed through a narrow breach in the rocks. Because the dingy was inflatable it was able to squeeze through, scraping the sheer rock face on either side, with cheery calls of 'watch your heads and backs' issuing from the able navigator. Once inside the cove, there is a quick step onto the rocks before a rather steep and exhilarating climb up a grassy gully to the gentler slopes above.

Inis na Bro does not have sheep, so deep heather is in abundance, especially on the last haul up to the summit. Views are amazing of the surrounding islands of Inisvickillane, Tearaght, and the Great Blasket. Inis na Bro is another island with gentle eastern slopes and fierce, sheer west-facing cliffs. There are no obvious remains of human settlements, and a flock of seagulls huddled on the SE end of the island, perhaps deciding what to do about these most unexpected visitors.

We saw some giant slugs and the burrows of either rabbits or petrels. They must live in absolute peace from humans for most of the year, and even our visit was short and hopefully not too intrusvive for them.

My photo shows the hidden cove with the entrance sea-arch behind as the dingy squeezes through. A most remarkable way to access an island! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1043/comment/14802/
