Home / Tory Island
Tory lies nine miles off the north west coast of Co.Donegal, Ireland. It is a small island measuring three miles in length and one mile across at its widest point. The population is one hundred and fifty which increases slightly during the summer months. It is an island steeped in history, music, song and dance with breathtaking views and is well worth a visit.
Whether it is your first time to visit Tory or a return visit you will be sure to enjoy all that the island has to offer from sightseeing to relaxing at a ceilí night. The local language is Gaelige but English is also spoken. During May - September the Corncrake can be heard calling in fields, while puffins can be seen nesting on the high cliffs and in June ferry passengers often get the pleasure of spotting the basking sharks or dolphins on the trip.
Donegal Coastal Cruises operates a new and modern passenger Cruiser out of Bunbeg and Magheroarty. Groups of over 70 people can be accommodated. The cruiser operates daily from April to October and five days per week all year around. Short bay cruises are also available.
Known locally as the James Dixon art gallery. It all began in the 1950's when the late English painter Derek Hill frequented the island on painting trips...
