Inishkeel island is located approximately 250 metres from the mainland in Gweebarra Bay and can be reached on foot at low tide by crossing a tidal sand bank. The population of Narin is spread sparsely around the countryside in mostly modern housing. There is a large tourist trade serviced by several B&Bs and caravan parks. The local amenities consist of two pubs, The Cope convenience store and beach front and caravan park shops. There is also an 18 hole golf course with club house.
