Fodor's Expert Review Blasket Centre

Dun Chaoin (Dunquin) Information Center Fodor's Choice

The Blasket Islands (An Bhlascaoid Mhóir) are among Ireland's most extraordinary islands. The largest visible from Ceann Sléibhe is the Great Blasket, inhabited until 1953. The Blasket islanders were great storytellers and were encouraged by Irish scholars to write their memoirs. The Blasket Centre explains the heritage of these islanders and celebrates their use of the Irish language with videos and exhibitions.
