The Blasket Island Guide

The Blasket Islands is famous for its beauty and isolation, for its wildlife and its location off the south-west tip of Ireland. Once the home of some of Ireland's most important writers, it has a unique, iconic status. The Blasket Island Guide is perfect for anyone who wants to explore the Great Blasket Island, learn its history and discover how this special place has captivated visitors and residents alike.

Ray Stagles first visited the Great Blasket Island in 1966, and has been passionate about the island ever since. He is the co-author of The Blasket Islands - Next Parish America.

Sue Redican is the only permanent resident of the Great Blasket Island, where she lives six months of the year, from April through October. The simplicity of the island provides the perfect setting for her weaving, spinning and plant-dyeing craft.
