The Centre, built in 1993 by the Office of Public Works, honours the unique heritage of the Blasket Island and celebrates the native Irish language. The Great Blasket Island, lying 5 km off the West Kerry coast, was inhabited continuously for at least three hundred years until its last remaining inhabitants decided to migrate to the mainland, with Government assistance, in 1953.

Very impressive building, and in keeping with its spectacular setting. If weather dictates that there's "no boat to the island today", the Centre will still give a good feel for life on the Blasket Islands. "For the likes of them will never be again", and such. If you do pick up Maurice O'Sullivan's "20 Years A Growing" in the bookshop, you'll feel like an islander yourself by the end of it.
