Boating Trips


Why not take a trip on a boat to Holy Island!

Holy Island in Lough Derg is one of the most famous monastic sites in Ireland. It’s secluded position has enabled it to survive in a wonderful state of preservation.

Its many attractions include a well-preserved Round Tower, the ruins of six churches and a cell like structure, which is one of the most extraordinary buildings in Ireland. There are ancient graveyards, high crosses, bullaun stones, a bargaining stone and a holy well.
