Kilrush, Clare,

Lying at the mouth of the River Shannon, Scattery Island is one of west Clare's best kept secrets.

Scattery Island, a beautiful historic island located in the mouth of the Shannon estuary, off the coast of Kilrush Co. Clare, is home to a monastery founded by St. Senan in the early 6th century, an number of churches now in ruin, an holy well, a lighthouse, and an Irish round tower and the remnants of an artillery battery.
