For only 10 euros (return) a motorboat will take you from the back of Ross Castle to the site of a Medieval monastic settlement. The structures are Romanesque and home to a colony of deer that are not at all intimidated by humans. You can...More

The monks of Inisfallen ultimately left the Island and founded the Abbey at Muckross, then finally settled in Killarney town. Brother MaCudda is famous in local legends for having walked across the lake, and leaving the imprint of his knees on the stone where he...More

A nice little monastic ruin. Not as well preserved or extensive as others, but a cheap boat ride with pretty views makes it worthwhile to visit. Apparently Brian Boru was educated here.

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 .
