Take a guided Kayak tour or a short boat journey from Ross Castle to the enchanting Innisfallen Island. Today, it is home to the ruins of a of Innisfallen Monastery founded in 640 and where Irish High King Brian Boru was educated. A major source of Early Irish History, The Annals of Innisfallen were also composed here. Steeped in Irish Mythology, the island is also home to a small herd of native red deer. The island embodies Irish folklore and history, and there is something truly magical about visiting this little gem of an island for an hour. Alternatively you can also book spectacular sunset Kayak Trips on the lake.
Irish myth tells us that the “little people” ride Dragonflies as a horse to travel in the blink of an eye. Some stories imply that the Dragonfly is actually a fairy in disguise that only can be seen from the right angle.
Interestingly, when dragonfly larvae hatch, they’re called “nymphs”. The Celts connect the Dragonfly with the ability to see truth; with the sight of the ancient, powerful Dragons who were guardians of the Sacred Stones and magical wells.
In European tradition, on the other hand, dragonflies are considered more threatening and are often seen as associates of the devil. This is reflected in some of the traditional English names for dragonflies such as 'devil's darning needles' and 'devil's riding horses'.

Found this one in the garden hiding under some trees ;)
Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you riding through the ruts, don't complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don't bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality. Wake Up and Live! #BobMarley
Always one of my favourite gardens in the city, it’s like a little oasis to escape to. 😍🍃 How is it the 1st of June already? 😬 Part of me feels that January only seems a short time away but at same time it kinda feels like ages away now. 🤔 I remember at the start of the year how everyone was so excited about the prospect of 2020 but who knew so many big changes could happen across the world which would turn our entire planet 🌍 upside down. 🙃🙈 Hopefully June will bring more positive changes though, I’m sure of it. ☺️
Have a great new week. 🙌🏻
When the black herds of the rain were grazing,
In the gap of the pure cold wind
And the watery hazes of the hazel
Brought her into my mind,
I thought of the last honey by the water
That no hive can find.
