I took a boat over to Innisfallen, and followed the boat ferryman's advice and walked around the island before spending time in the ruins. Because I was one of the first people on the paths, I saw a herd of red deer (although they were wary of me, so I kept my distance and tried to walk slowly and quietly.)... More

the scenery on the short boat ride was lovely. the island was very peaceful - you could see why monks chose it as a monastery site. not much to see - the boat came back for us 45 minutes later. but we enjoyed it.

I always find I run out of time here, so spend a least 4 hours here and bring a picnic and explore the island and ruins, see if you can spot any of the many animals that live on the Island.

Its history speaks volumes and the place of education for the last King of Ireland? Ask about the annals of Inish Fallon kept in the Bodellium library in Oxford England

We had great fun here. We hired a boat at Ross Castle and rowed out. Its only about a mile and you can hire fishing rods as well. We even caught a couple of fish!! The island is very lovely with some great ruins and a lot of deer, lovely wild flowers

Highlight of our latest trip to Killarney. Fergus the boatman took us out on Lough Leane and over to Innisfallen Island. It was extremely reasonably priced and Fergus himself was a delight! We circled the island first before getting off. On our way we were very lucky to spot a white tailed sea eagle. Fergus also gave us plenty of... More

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
