Directions to Craggy Island

It wouldn't be on any maps. It's not exactly "New York". The best way to find it is generally to head out from Galway and go slightly north until you see the English boats with the Nuclear symbol on the side. They come very close to the island when they're dumping the old glow-in-the-dark.

When you get there, there's no idications that it is Craggy island. There's no signs or anything. If you see a man looking at you with a t-shirt saying "I SHOT JR" then you're there alright.

There are no landmarks on Craggy island. The island itself is a kind of landmark really. For ships and that. The general rule is if you're heading away from it you're going in the right direction.
