Inishturk is a stunning island 13km off Ireland's north west coast in county Mayo. Measuring only 5km x 2.5km, this island off the Mayo coast which translates as ‘Island of the Wild Boar’ has been inhabited for over 4000 years and is located between the islands of Inishbofin and Clare. With the secluded beaches of Tranaun and Curran beaches offering pristine clear blue waters, the island offers plenty more with ideal picnic and swimming spots, nightly entertainment, accommodation, diving, snorkeling, fishing and hiking with steep cliffs and rugged paths.
