Visitors

 

These are privately owned islands. Day visitors to the Greater Saltee are kindly requested to respect the following rules
and safety issues:

 

*  Please pay careful attention to the cliff areas as the ground 
    is unsteady and may give way.

*  Please remember you are in a remote location and help might be slow.

*  No camping is allowed on the islands at anytime. The lighting of fires is
    strictly forbidden. 

*  Please take with you any rubbish you might have as rare birds and
    rabbits could be harmed.

The use of DRONES is strictly forbidden as it is intrusive and a danger to the birds.

*  Dogs are not allowed on the Islands for obvious reasons.

 

BIRD SIGNS

The Bird signs are there for a reason. Please do not approach the nesting birds closer than 6 meters. The foot fall is having a devastating effect on the bird population. Should visitors see photographers not obeying the signs please explain to them that they are killing the birds and to use their lens instead of their feet.  If things do not improve with the bird population due to the current foot fall we will be forced to close the island to visitors.

 

 

Family in Residence:

The family is in residence when the flag is flying. Please afford them privacy and do not approach the house.

Please follow all directional signs i.e. To Throne, To Boat, Private No Entry etc.

Day visitors are  allowed on the Great Saltee between 11:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. only. Arranged trips from Kilmore Quay are approved within these hours. Any visitors landing a boat outside of these hours will be asked to leave.

The Saltee Islands are both rare and beautiful. All are welcome to see and enjoy. Please respect the above requests and leave the Great Saltee as you found it.

 

 

PERMISSION WILL NOT BE GIVEN FOR OVERNIGHT STAYS AT ANY TIME. NO EXCEPTIONS WILL
BE MADE. PLEASE DO NOT ASK.

 

 

Permission cannot be granted for tourists to visit the Little Saltee due to the dangerous landing conditions.
