This is somewhere I’ve always wanted to visit. I got the opportunity, finally, while on holiday in West Cork last weekend. It’s a really beautiful place. There was a wedding taking place while I was there (it’s a very popular place for small intimate weddings), and, as there were photographs being taken, I didn’t venture onto the island.
There’s a hotel across the lake from the church as well as a pub/café and shop. Fishing licenses can be purchased at the shop and there were a few people fishing down at the lake. There are some lovely walks around the forest park so it’s a really nice place to while away a few hours.
