Short Summary created by Colin Murphy,  12 Jul 2017
You can get a boat to Great Saltee Island from Kilmore Quay. Booking is advisable. The cost is €25 per person. The boat drops you off at set times and collects you about four hours later. The trip across takes 20 minutes. The actual landing is done via a rubber dinghy (there is no pier) and can be a wet landing when tide is high. The island is privately owned, but the owner allows visitors. There are no roads or facilities and just one house, which you must keep clear of, including the immediate surrounding land. Other than that you may wander the entire island freely. There are a few tracks here and there. Most of the birds are to be found on the southern and western sides of the island, which is quite beautiful, much of it lined with cliffs. There is a vast colony of gannets near the south-western tip, but you can also see puffins, shags, guillemots, great black-backed gulls and many more species. The high point of the island is about 100m directly north of the gannet colony. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/2390/comment/19306/
