Let it be said: Deenish is rather difficult to visit. Also, you will be able to admire and photograph it from the Irish coast of County Kerry. This one is located on the left side of the island of Scariff and has green colours that are darker than the dark. The island has a hill with an altitude of 144 meters.

For the record, Deenish was not inhabited until 1837. Three Irish families decided to live there and raise cattle. Nevertheless, the 1911 census reported that only 6 families lived there. Nowadays, the island is now 100ù wild, with no trace of daily human life on its land.

There are a few boat companies that will offer you a tour of the island. Nevertheless, the route will depend on the weather conditions. It is possible to do some hiking once you are there.
