Welcome to Inishmurray.com

Inishmurray is a small island which lies in Donegal Bay off the coast of County Sligo Ireland approximately 7km from Streedagh the nearest point on the mainland

The islands main historical feature the Cashel is an early Christian monastic settlement ascribed to St Molaise and is estimated to date back to the 6th century. The discovery of a cist burial and carved stones suggests prehistoric occupation

Inishmurray was occupied in relatively more recent times until 1948 when the last remaining islanders left for a new life on the mainland. The remains of their homes are all that’s left of what was once a small thriving community living of the sea and a small area of arable land
