Came close to this lovely island as part of a boat trip on the killarney lakes. The ruins of a 12th century priory can clearly be seen and visits to land on the island can I believe, be made .

Decided to take a motor boat over to the island from Ross Castle. Mike was driving the boat. He was very informative. The island is very historical and tranquil. It is exceptionally beautiful! I would definitely recommend a visit.
