Inishmore Seal Colony

When visiting Inishmore, the seal colony is a must see attraction. Located on the coast road approximately one mile from Kilmurvy beach. The seal colony is clearly signposted and has picnic tables on site, so bring a picnic lunch and take use of the available tables and chairs to enjoy it in the beautiful surroundings. The best views of the seals is best at low tide when the seals are sun bathing on the rocks. Conversely, at high tide, the seals are much harder to spot as you can only see their heads in the water. During low tide at the Inishmore seal colony anywhere from 5 – 20 seals can be spotted at a given time.
