Inis Cealtra/ Holy Island.

 The historic island in Lough Derg on the river Shannon, is accessible by boat (hired) from Mountshannon quay-side.  Well worth a visit. The boat owner allows time to have a good walk around the place to see the many interesting ancient sites.  The Sliabh Ara mountains, which more or less overlook the village of Ballina and town of Killaloe can be seen on the right side of the picture.  
(The Arra Mountains or Arra Hills are situated in County Tipperary in Ireland, between the towns of Nenagh and Ballina, south east of Lough Derg and north of the M7 Motorway. The highest summit is Tountinna at 457m high. Wikipedia)
