Ignoring the need for a boat, then Ireland's Eye meets the criteria for a T3. We did it in 2009 when the kids were 9 & 7. And it is possible to get a commercial service to Ireland's Eye. But, if it meets the criteria for a T5, then it's an easy T5 .T3
Not suitable for small children
The average adult or older child should be OK depending on physical condition. Terrain is likely off-trail. May have one or more of the following: some overgrowth, some steep elevation changes, or more than a 2 mile hike.
Extremely challenging terrain Requires specialized equipment (boat, 4WD, rock climbing, SCUBA, etc.) or is otherwise extremely difficult.
One of my bugbears is that I am CO to a T5, have been to the location many times, yet get no credit on the grid for having logged a T5. The only similar cache I have logged is a T4, but that may be 'cause it is possible to swim there.
