The wonderful Blasket Islands in Co. Kerry remain uninhabited. Abandoned in 1954 due to population decline, the islands are today best known from the storytelling of Muiris Ó Súilleabháin and Peig Sayers part of the school curriculum for so many years.  Interest in the islands was stirred once again when former Taoiseach Charles Haughey’s purchased  Inishvickillane in the 1980s.  You can hire boats that will bring you to the islands to explore them and pick you up after a few hours. A beautiful part of the world.
