The rain poured down and our boat which took us over for the visit was almost as old as the salty captin was. Our guide provided an excellent tour and historical review of the island.

What a gem of a place, so picturesque and if you are quite, you can see a lot of deer running around.

We rowed a boat over to the island and that was a fun experience.The island is just beautiful, it was magical just wandering around and randomly bumping into the deer on the island.The ruins are actually well preserved considering their age.

You can reach the abbey via a small boat (10 euros return) and I recommend taking this option. The boats take up to 12 people, you sit in the fresh air and can just enjoy the sunshine and the views - and they are stunning. The island is located on Lough Leane and surrounded by picturesque mountains. On the island... More

Get here by boat from behind Ross castle. You can take the motorised boats for 10 euro round trip (more for longer) or rent a boat and paddle yourself across the lake (must be fit as this is a good distance and quite difficult in choppy waters.) There are the remains of 6th century monastery here and remnants of a... More

Gorgeous! We took a boat from Ross Castle and roamed the island for an hour or so. Afterwards, we were told by a local that we could arrange to stay for longer periods of time to really explore the island and even take a picnic. We will do that if we ever get back here again.

I was looking forward to this as I had heard it was different and it was. This place is a real look at the past. When we went we were the only ones on the island, probably because it was drizzly and cold. The boat ride is lovely and the island is a historic site in the middle of killarney... More

Innisfallen Island is well worth the short boat trip from Ross Castle across Lough Leane. The ruins of the monastery dominate the island but there is also a delightful trail around the island. Make it your business to head out here, it truly is a magical place
