Gola Island Co. Donegal, IRELAND
Climbs 70 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude 11m a.s.l – Faces ?
A couple of hundred routes on sea cliffs together with a small inland Crag make Gola a great weekend get away. Just watch for the tide before committing yourself to an absail down to sea level. Ask Jimmy the boatman for low/high tide times. The rough is a very rough granite that has the ability to tear rubber from your shoes and skin from your fingers.
Best option is to phone Jimmy Sweeney in advance on 00353-75-31281 for arranging with him to drop you of on the island via his boat Can take about 15-20 people with gear. In the summer tourists also make use of this service so can be competition for boat space. Make sure you book in advance as its not a scheduled service and Jimmy will be able to advise on tide times.
Alternatively for smaller groups, in Summer the Tory ferry also operates from Bunbeg harbour. A phone call to Turasmara 075-31320/31340 and it should be possible to have the boat drop you off at Gola pier (but not at low tide), and hopefully pick you up again in the evening. Asking fishermen randomly at the Bunbeg pier has also proven successful.
