If you visit Ross castle and have the time do visit this small island. It will cost you €10 per person to make the trip, but I think it's worth it. We were vert lucky as we were the first on the island and had the place for ourselves for about an hour. There are lots of quite friendly deer... More

While visiting Killarney with friends we decided to get a boat across the lake over to Innisfallen island. Two of us are regular visitors to Killarney but had never taken a boat on the lake and had heard that the island was lovely, so off we went. Charlie was the guy driving the boat (sailing?!) and we had a good... More

This is the best way to see the island. Hire a row boat and get some great exercise. By the time you get there you will feel so invigorated and ready to walk the island. Amazingly peaceful and steeped in history. We stayed and had a picnic before heading back and it wa amazing way to spend 4 hours rowing,... More

The most peaceful and greaceful place I visited in Ireland. We took a small boat thru the lake to the Island and he left us there with one other family. We spent about an hour in the ruins of a monastery and nature. The trail around the island is a treat that you should try

My friends took this tour on the little boat that takes you to the island. The owner has his little dog riding in the boat. they loved that. The island was like a fairy tale all kinds of little hidden gems.

This little lsland is such a wonderful place to visit, with a lot of history. The only way to get to there is by a small boat from Ross Castle in Killarney National Park. The boat captain will wait for you once you get to the Island, while looking at the Abbey ruins and hike around. Innisfallen is full of... More

You can land on the island either by boat or in your kayak. The island has deer and a ruin which was built, or more accurately, rebuilt by the Normans, on an early Christian site. It is a magical place and well worth a visit.

We have been to Inishfallen three times now and every time we come, we find something new. It is really funny. It is a great adventure for families with small children. The kids are all excited about the boat ride. We always have the same guy taking us (just works out that way) and he is really nice, tells a... More

Recommend hiddenadventures and their kayaking or canoeing trip. Quite a bit of paddling from where we stayed but it was worth it. Seen over 20 deers close by the monastery on that island.
