The flattest of all.

Visited in October 2015. On the pier there's a notice that from May to July birds are nesting so be careful and avoid bringing dogs during that time. On a low tide the rocky shore nearly doubles the surface of island, there's also a decent beach by the pier. On my visit I saw one renovated house, one under construction and one wooden shack/cottage. Ruins of old school (1910) can be found on the far end towards Arranmore. Walking isn't that pleasant around the island because of the rocks.
Inishkeeragh has almost no prominence and isn't a pretty island but nonetheless there are fine view towards Arranmore and Burtonport. This tiny speck of land once had a decent population, it's a nostalgic place. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/2022/comment/19552/
