Sightseeing

Famous Monastic site just off Mountshannon Harbour easy to access by boat. Serene and spiritual place to get some head space in this busy world. Cribby Island (nearby) is home to a pair of rare White Tailed Sea Eagles who produced 2 chicks in 2017 - magnificent sighting from the Harbour all for free!
