Lambay is the largest island off the east coast of Ireland and lies just 20 km from the centre of Dublin and five km off the coast of Rush, North County Dublin.


The remnants of a vast volcano, Lambay emerged after two continents joined to create Ireland 450 million years ago. Consequently, it is formed from a beautiful flecked green stone – porphyry – from which our Neolithic ancestors made exquisite crafted stone axes 7000 years ago.  Its early history is obscure but, like many other small islands, it attracted a romantic variety of saints, hermits and pirates.  It is thought to be one of the first places that Viking raiders landed and proofs of its ancient history and early modern settlement were found around the harbour, dating from the 1st century AD.


Some of the artefacts, including a bracelet, can be seen today in the Dublin museum. The island has steep cliffs on its northern, eastern and southern sides with a more low-lying western shore.  It is a paradise of fine architecture, birds, flowers, sheep, seals, fallow deer and even a mob of wallabies!


A truly unique corner of the earth, the island is internationally important for its variety of seabirds and is also home to the largest breeding colony of Atlantic Grey Seals on the east coast of Ireland.  It is a Natural 2000 site designated for its birdlife and seal colonies, as well as holding a remarkable place in European natural history as the site of a pioneering biological investigation undertaken by the naturalist Robert Lloyd Praeger in 1906.
