The Scattery Island Festival on July 26th-27th also features guided walks, lectures, music and song, and marine activities celebrating the island’s association with St. Senan, the Vikings, Brian Ború, the Spanish Armada and later as a defence outpost for the British.

The Scattery Island Festival is part-funded under the Community Tourism Diaspora Fund, operated locally by Clare County Council, IPB and Failte Ireland.
