Omey is a tidal island located near Claddaghduff, a few miles from Clifden, in the western edge of Connemara. There is a route across the sand to the island and, at high tide, the water is deep enough to cover a car. To help in the last moments before the water becomes too deep, there are conventional street signs to indicate the highest route.
The start time depends on the tide but usually around noon and, of course, the finish time also depends on the tide.
