The two islands are Great Saltee (89 hectares) and Little Saltee (37 hectares) and are a Special Area of Conservation.

The islands are a breeding ground for Fulmar, Gannet, Shag, Kittiwake, Guillemot, Razorbill, Puffin and Grey Seal. An area surrounding both islands and extending approximately 500m off shore was granted the status of a Special Protection Area to protect the bird habitat.
