Boat trips to O’Sullivan’s Cascade
O’Sullivan’s Cascade is a quiet, secluded cascade on the southern shore of Killarney’s Lower Lake, Loch Léin. A popular tourist spot in Victorian Times, the area can also be visited via Tomies Wood. See our guiding page for more details.
Some of the most impressive archaeological remains in Killarney date from early Christian times, and the most important of these is the ruined monastery found on Inisfallen Island in Lough Léin. This monastery was founded in the 7th century by St. Finian the Leper, and was occupied for approximately 700 years. Over a period of about 300 of these, the ‘Annals of Inisfallen’ were written, which chronicle the early history of Ireland as it was known to the monks. The Annals are therefore an extremely important manuscript, and the original copy is kept in a controlled atmosphere in the Bodleian Library in Oxford. The monastery here is also thought to have given rise to the name Lough Léin, which means “Lake of Learning”. We run boat trips to Inisfallen on a regular basis.
