Eco Experiences

The Dolphin Eco Experiences

gold logo experiencesOur ecotourism experiences are all based mainly outdoors, immersed in the beautiful nature and scenery of Inishbofin, an SAC and an SPA because of its importance as a breeding site for the globally endangered corncrake.

Skylark Experience

Immerse yourself in the nature and culture of the beautiful island of Inishbofin. Walk this ancient landscape, spend half a day sheep farming, do some birdwatching, harvest your own seaweed, visit an uninhabited island, and plant a ridge of spuds!

Skylark song reverberates everywhere and, like Inishbofin itself, is not to be missed.

 

Birdwatching Breaks

Birdwatching courses involve full days of walking through unspoilt areas, including cliffs, beaches, hills and bogs. Lapwings, Ringed Plovers, Oystercatchers and Common Sandpiper all breed here, as do terns and small numbers of Corncrakes and Choughs.

Some tours include a RIB trip to neighbouring islands of Inishturk or Inishark where participants may see Grey seals, Common and Bottlenosed dolphins, and many seabirds including Great Skua, Puffin, Razorbills. Courses are led by experienced bird watching guide, author and photographer, Anthony McGeehan.
