As part of Heritage Week (17-25 August) the programme includes a selection of lovely islands and a wide range of activities to entice you.
From waltzing on Scattery Island, Co Clare or learning about boatbuilding on Bere Island there are a multitude of events taking place over the week.
Here are the main events that are directly linked to islands. Note that some events are totally free; in others ferry trips must be paid.
Where events are during part of the day, the times are given, otherwise events take place over a full day.
