Yes, you could set yourself up as a James Bond-style villain on an island with plenty of room to house some henchmen – Inishturk Beg covers 65 acres with as many as five island houses overall, a pier, a floating marina and of course, the main residence.

That main house is the work of European Young Architect of the Year, Andrew Wright, who has produced a 12,000 sq.ft property over two floors, which includes six bedrooms, reception rooms and an adjacent leisure complex made up of a gym area, games room, cinema, ceile hall, large indoor heating swimming pool and jacuzzi, all of which is surrounded by external terraces.

In terms of getting there, you’ll find the island in Clew bay, which is around 10km from the tourist towns and beauty spots of Westport and Newport and around 67km from Knock Airport. RyanAir fly there, but I suspect you’ll be going by other means if you can afford this.
