Picture: Abandoned village on Eddy Island
 
Island in Galway Bay
by TommyV  29 Jun 2020
Eddy Island is nestled into the Eastern side of Galway bay. With water transport it can be accessed from the north via a a quay 5km West from Clarinbridge or from the South via a quay 5km North from Kinvarra. We paddled out on our sea kayaks from the North. The island was abandoned in the early 80's but it's still farmed and there appears to be one or two of the old cottages maintained as holiday homes. The island itself is very flat, the high point being only 8m from sea level. There are no public facilities on the island so if visiting bring food and water.
