Islands along the Wild Atlantic Way not surprisingly are among seven in a list of islands within Irish and UK waters which draw attention as there’s something about crossing the sea that makes a holiday feel proper.

As BreakingNews adds staycations are all the rage right now for obvious reasons, but cars and trains lack the intrepid glamour of boats and planes, and when you visit an island it feels like you’ve entered a new and exciting ecosystem.

Island hopping begins at home. Here are some awesome islets that can help save your holiday, on both sides of the Irish Sea…

...where Cape Clear off Cork in the south west, the Aran Islands in Galway Bay and Claire Island further to north along the Wild Altantic Way in Co. Mayo proudly feature among the seven islands.

So take a snapshot read of these islands and beyond to those in UK waters by clicking here.
