Waterville lake home to Church islandChurch Island Waterville a 12th Century Church on an Island.

One of the least visited and thus more original sites in Waterville is that of Church Island. Church island sits in the middle of Lough Currane (Waterville Lake) and can only be accessed by hiring a boat locally. On the island you will find the remains of an old Irish monastery dating back to around the 12th century built in Romanesque style. You don’t have to be into architecture to appreciate the craftsmanship and dedication that went into the building of the church. Also located on the island is St Fininas Cell believed to be associated with the sixth century saint known as Fionan Cam (Fionan the Squint-eyed).
