Inisfallen Island on Loch Lein Killarney, Co Kerry

Meet at oSullivans Bike Shop at 11am for a half-day guided walk/boat trip in Killarney National Park which includes a visit to the famous, and historic Inisfallen Island in the centre of beautiful Loch Lein. In times past the Vikings visited it as did Oliver Cromwells army in 1652 on their way to plunder Ross Castle. That famous Irishman Daniel oConnell spent the night here in 1828 unable to go ashore due to the stormy weather.Hopefully we wont be stormbound,and we can enjoy the unique flora,and fauna of this 23 acre gem where we will not only see the monastic ruins but also get a closer look at the oakwoods of Tomies. If the weather is unsuitable for boat travel then the cost will be just €10. Total cost €20 booking required please 087 6394362 or info@killarneyguidedwalks.com Inisfaithleann i lar na Locha tar amach linn
