Innisfallen Island

Innisfallen Island Review

The romantic ruins on Innisfallen Island date from the 6th or 7th century. Between 950 and 1350 the Annals of Innisfallen were compiled here by monks. (The book survives in the Bodleian Library in Oxford.) To get to the island, which is on Lough Leane, you can rent a rowboat at Ross Castle (€5 per hour), or you can join a cruise (€10) in a covered, heated launch.
