Abandoned by it's last residents in 1953, the Great Blasket is one on the most westerly points of Ireland. The ruins of the Island's only village still cling to the steep eastern slope acting as a poinant reminder of the rich rural culture which once thrived there.
All around this beautiful Island the cliffs plung into the Atlantic creating wonderful diving opportunities. Its a dramatic location which has countless undived reefs just waiting to be discovered.
For the August Bank Holiday 2013 we will travelling down to the Dingle Peninsular to dive the Great Blasket. We will be based in the village of Ventry which has good facilities and safe moorings yet is within easy reach of the Island dive sites as well as some great locations around the peninsular.
Owing to the nature of these exciting reefs, you will need to be certified to Advanced level with experience or higher.
