If you haven't read Kevin Rennie's piece on U.S. Sen. Chris Dodd's Irish cottage, do. It's hard to imagine how it could all be on the strict up-and-up, though I'm open to more information.
Meantime, though, let's see what kind of place Inishnee island in Ireland is. From the looks of it, I can see why Dodd likes it. I know I wouldn't mind a few weeks there in the summer.
According to Wikipedia, "Inishnee (Gaelic: Inis Ní), is a small island off the shore of Ireland, in Roundstone Bay near the village of Roundstone in Connemara in County Galway. The island is equipped with a lighthouse. As of 2006, it had a population of 28." I don't think that counts Dodd.
But here is a picture of Dodd over there that recently ran in the Connemara View. Look just above the O'Dowd's Bar advertisement on the right.
These show the island's lighthouse:
Here's the view from another cottage on the island:
