The island is located around 1.5 km East of Arranmore and South-West of the small island of Eighter. A foothbridge connects the two islets, both known for pleasant sandbeaches. The inner part of Inishcoo is mainly rocky (granite) and bears a small lake.
A small community used to live on Inishcoo in the first part of the 20th century. Some of the old houses are used as holiday homes; the biggest is a former coast-guard building in the sout-western part of the island.
