It's a great day for another incredible Trek Ireland virtual walking tour as you explore the mystical Inisfallen Island, situated in the middle of Lough Léin, in Killarney National Park, County Kerry.
You'll begin your journey aboard a skiff, piloted by the knowledgeable Charlie Fleming of Ross Castle Boat Tours. Charlie will provide an insightful commentary on the history of the island as you make your way across the shimmering lake.
Upon arrival, you'll virtually explore the 12th-century Augustinian ruins, nestled beside a magnificent mature yew tree. As you walk among the ruins, you'll be transported back in time and imagine what life must have been like for the monks who lived and worked on the island so many centuries ago.
Continuing your virtual tour, you'll make your way around the island, taking in the stunning views of the lake and surrounding mountains. Keep an eye out for the wild deer that roam freely on the island, and listen to the sounds of nature all around you.
As you reach the end of your virtual walk, you'll arrive at the 12th-century Oratory on the north-facing side of the island, where an original Celtic cross still stands. You'll feel a sense of awe and reverence as you take in the spiritual energy of this ancient site.
If you're interested in walking in Ireland or walking at home for general health, this guided virtual walking tour is perfect for you. You'll experience the beauty of Inisfallen without leaving your home, and you'll get to learn about the fascinating history and culture of the area from a local guide.
