St Finbarr's church was built in the early days of the last century on the little island in Gougane Barra lake where St Finbarr had his monastery in the 6th century. The island has been constant use down through the centuries with different schools and hermitages. The current church is very popular as a magical wedding venue and with visitors from all over the world.
