Offshore Magheroarty, County Donegal, Ireland
This little island of Inishbofin, meaning (Island of the white cow) lays just off-shore Magheroarty Beach. Only 100 years ago there were 150 permanent inhabitants living here but today there is only an estimated 36 islanders. Inishbofin has no shops, pubs or hotels etc so all supplies needed to survive are brought over from the mainland by boat.
But what this island lacks in modernism, it certainly makes up for in nature by having 2 stunning sandy cove beaches side by side. Plus lets not forget that 360 degree view that can be obtained from anywhere on this island which overlooks Donegal’s majestic shore & islands. These 2 smaller nearby islands are ‘Inishdooey’ & ‘Carrickirragh’. Sadly both are totally uninhabited today. On the distant horizon can be seen the larger populated ‘Tory Island‘.
Do you ever wish to escape this ever advancing, overpopulating world we are forced to adapt with & simply walk alone across an island like this with no mobile phones or traffic in sight? I have said it before & I will say it again… “I would happily move to any of these islands today if I could” Someday I will do it 🤞
