Inishmeane (Inis Meáin) is a summer only inhabited island, it lives approx 1 kilometre west of Port Arthur off the Gweedore coast. It sits approx 800 metres south of its nearest neighbour, Inishsirrer and over a kilometre east of Umphin_island. The island was originally populated until the mid 1960's and then abandoned due to the general hardship of living there. Since 2000 and the effect of the Celtic Tiger half the islands homes the pier have been renovated and there is no mains water or electricity on the island.

   Access to the island is by boat with Port Arthor tothe island pier being by far the easiest crossing. I've have walked the entire coast of this wee island and alas I've found no suitable cliffs for rock climbing.
