Site description (2000 baseline)
Two small, rocky islands approximately 7 km off the north coast of County Dublin. The lighthouse present on one island has been unmanned since 1989.
Rockabill is important for breeding seabirds and supports the largest breeding colony of Sterna dougallii in the north-east Atlantic and, thus, in Europe.
