The Plassey wreck doesn't look that big on photos, but when you get up close it's huge. Very interesting to imagine the sight of the huge ship hit land like it did. A must when visiting the Inishere.

“Lovely sight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2013 via mobile

Wanted to see this boat since I got into the father ted comedy. It's a wonderful spot for photo opportunities as is the while island. Last time I was there we hired out a horse and carriage for a trip around the island but when I go again I would rather walk as I can spend hours walking around with my camera. Highly recommend visiting this island. Also, there's a lovely pub that does
Delightful toasted sandwiches.

“Father Ted Craggy Island Shipwreck on Inisheer lol”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2013

This was a must visit due to the famous Father Ted comedy series. We hired bikes and cycled to the wreck however walking would be no problem either. The boat looks just as good in real life as on the TV. Good for taking photos as there are lots of nooks and crannies. The wreck has a great history which is well covered in other reviews of this attraction. We enjoyed it.
Note: The attraction itself is not suitable for elderly or wheelchair persons as it has very rocky access however the road nearby is fine and there are also locals who do sightseeing trips around the Island in horse or tractor drawn carts.

“Amazing...breath taking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2013

This ship wreck does be on the beginning of 'father ted' and it is amazing to see it. Sank in 1960s and all crew were rescued by inis sheer residents... Years later an incredible storm washed the wreck ashore where it now stands upright. i even climbed inside it but be very careful as its all rusty.

“Very Unique”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2013

What a quaint little island. We rented bikes and rode almost the entire island. This is a curiously beautiful odd ship wreck that is a bit hard to find but quite prominent once you do. You can walk all around it for pictures. Very scenic views at all angles. We ended the day at Tigh Neds for a Guinness. It is a wonderful place to spend the day.
