Description

View of the shore of Innisfallen Island and Lough Leane, as seen from the walk leading from the landing stage to the old Romanesque oratory. Innisfallen Island is described as follows by the authors:

In truth, this little island is very beautiful, resting as it does with so much ease and grace upon the surface of the lake; indented with the most fairy-like bays; elevated into rocky, though not rude magnificence at one side, while the opposite shore shelves to the water’s edge, and runs out into shallows. It is a miniature of a beautiful country—lawns, and dells, and thickets, and vistas, with the most lovely views of the lake and the mainland, that assume new aspects from every point of view.
