This is the most westerly of the Blasket Islands. Its profile is remarkably similar to that of Skellig Michael. Its only human inhabitants were the lighthouse-keepers and their families. As the lighthouse was on the side facing the Atlantic, the view only reinforced their isolation. A natural rock-arch connects the two parts of the island.
An Tiaracht is the 1391th highest place in Ireland. An Tiaracht is the most westerly summit in the Dingle West area. It's also the most westerly summit in Ireland. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1037/
