This 96 acre island is found 5 km off the Western coast of Donegal. The island is the second out to sea from Magheroarty Pier and forms part of an enchainment of the four islands collectively known as the Donegal Archipelago, which comprises Inishbofin, Inishdooey, Inishbeg and Tory Island. The name Inishdooey is said to come from Saint Dubhthach, a 6th century saint who was the driving force behind getting the monastery built on the island. All that remains of the monks’ settlement on the island are the ruins of stone wall buildings and the small stone church.
