Innisfallen is the Largest island on Lough Leane. The island is famous for a monastery that was founed by St. Finan in 600AD. It quickly became a centre for learning and its reputation spread, attracting students from all over Europe. The island became a cultural haven and it was here that the ‘Annals of Inisfallen’, a chronicle of world and Irish history, were written in the 11th century. Leane means learning and it was to commemorate the island that the Lough was given this name.
