About Innisfallen Island

Innisfallen Island in Killarney, Co. Kerry.

Innisfallen Island is located on Loyugh Leane, one of the Lakes of Killarney. It is home to the ruins of Innisfallen Abbey which was founded in 640 by St. Finnian the Leper. It was here that the monks wrote the Annals of Innisfallen, which chronicles the early history of Ireland as it is known to the monks. Much like Muckross Abbey, the monks were expuled by Queen Elizabeth I in 1594. It is believed that the Irish Hight King Brian Boru received his education here.
