Imagine completely getting away from it all … on an island in the Atlantic ocean … adjacent to the Wild Atlantic Way. Imagine one of the most picturesque and romantic picnics you could have. We can make it happen, with our Blasket Basket Package.

This gorgeous two night package includes one of the most magical experiences, a trip to the incredibly romantic and picturesque Great Blasket Island, the most westerly point in Europe, located three miles off the Dingle Peninsula.

Enjoy two nights at award winning Castlewood House – just named AA Guest Accommodation of the Year 2019, with our award winning Breakfast each morning and champagne on arrival.

The island offers scenic walks, flora and fauna, prehistoric remains and abundant sea and bird life. The island which is extremely important in our Irish Heritage, was home to a small farming and fishing community until it was vacated in 1953.

The package includes a Day Tour to Great Blasket Island starting at 11a.m including a one and half hour Eco Tour and three and half hours on the island – lots of time to explore, and to find a spot in which to enjoy your picnic. Guests will arrive back in Dingle at 5.30p.m.
