We got one of the small boats from Ross Castle and enjoyed the brief ride to the island. The ruins are not as impressive as those we have seen elsewhere in island so we spent our time wandering the path that encircles the island. The...More
Innisfallen Island is home to the ruins of Innisfallen Abbey. The monastery was founded in the 6th/7th Century by St. Finian the Leper. We hopped on the small, open boat from Ross Castle and took the short ride across the lake to it, getting views...More
This was a brilliant boat trip out to Innisfallen and it was only €10 each. The wild deer on the island were fantastic to see. The views at the back of the island were like something from a postcard. This is really worth the visit.
We took a quick boat ride over to the island from Ross castle. The monastery ruins are interesting and the views around the island are breathtaking.
I was walking along the trail next to the foxglove and noticed deer heads moving through the field. It...More

I have found out the answer myself now - there is no set timetable. Generally runs between 9 or 9:30 and 5. If there is a boat and skipper there at the dock, they will take you to the island (10 Euro per person; takes ten minutes in a small open motor-boat. They provide and required use of life jackets). If it is busy, they will go back and forth, and you can take any return boat with space. If it is not busy (like when we were there, on a nice Sunday morning in June), the skipper will wait at the island for you for 30 minutes - enough to take a decent look at the building ruins, but not to spend time for a picnic or such.
