Fergus (boatman) and his brother donal at the pier at Ross castle added enjoyment to the short trip and we were gifted with spotting some gentle deer while wandering around the very special Inisfallen Island. The short boat trip was lovely.

Walking around this ruin, we could understand why it is a popular tourist attraction. There's the opportunity to take a boat on the water, which we didn't take advantage of, but we thought it would be popular during warmer weather.

I drove around the Lough Leane to Ross castle and a pier on the lake where I met Fergus who had a boat that could take me to the island in the middle with ruins of a famous monastery there. Fergus and I discussed a huge range of subjects and like so many Irishmen i have met responded with friendliness to friendliness given. I was dropped on the island and Fergus said because it was so early and i had paid for a solo passage, he would wait for me. He pulled out the paper and laid back and i thought that is not a bad life. There was an Augustinian Priory, a Romanesque church and a small oratory on a hill in the woods. The island was heavily forested and I was by myself again wonderfully quiet and scenic. It was here that the monks wrote the “Annals of Innisfallen” - an account of the history of Ireland between 950 and 1350 and now kept at the Bodleian Library in Oxford. The boat journey across the Lough, the company of Fergus and the search for the ruins on the island was one of my most enjoyable interludes in Ireland.

Took a small boat across from Ross Castle to Innisfallen. It was a beautiful day to be on the water, scenery was outstanding. The captain of our little ship was fun and informative. So much beauty, so much history.

After walking to Ross Castle we were able to take a short boat trip to Innisfallen Island. The island has many beautiful trails to explore. Remember to bring your camera to take pictures of the summer flowers and ruins. Don't forget to pack a picnic lunch to enjoy. Picnic tables are available for you to use.
