Based at Kilgarvan Quay, if you're looking for water sports then this is the place to go. Fun, safe tours can be scheduled to suit any budget or group.
There is a ferry which leaves Mountshannon regularly during the tourist season to Holy Island. The foundations for this monastic settlement were laid by St. Caimlin in the seventh century, and the ruins that remain provide an insight into the lives of the religious at this period in our history. The remains of many buildings have survived, as have graveyards and crosses.
Mountshannon is one of Irelands best fly fishing centres, and is always busy with anglers around the Mayfly season.
