Lambay- Island of birds and wallabies
Short Summary created by jackill  26 Jan 2014
Lambay island is not the easiest place to access as it lies 6 miles off the coast and is privately owned.
As of 2013 Skerries Sea Tours are available to hire to take visitors to the island.
Once on the island you have approximately two hours to wander accompanied by one of their guides.
The highest point is easily accessed over farm tracks and consists of a rocky mound with fine views over Dublin bay. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1370/comment/15614/
