Ever dreamed of owning your own little paradise island? It may be more feasible than you think.

Insihparran Island or "Page's Island" in Co. Clare is now for sale for a quarter of a million Euro.

Page's Island is an inland 20-acre island located on Lough Derg on the River Shannon. A tiny oasis of Irish wildlife, it is filled with a variety of mature trees, including oak, hazel, hawthorn and holly. At the heart of the island, there is an open green space, comprising about 7 acres of "high-quality land."

At the northern end of the island, you'll find a fisherman's hut that has been extended into a small wooden cabin.

The cabin does need to be refurbished but includes a kitchen, living room, bedroom, and bathroom, as well as a water supply and septic tank. The island is uniquely private, in that it is only accessible by a submerged causeway.

As the water level can rise and fall on the lake, you can drive to the island only in a 4x4 vehicle, or a vehicle that can withstand driving through shallow water. It is also possible to access the island by boat.
