Devenish Island is a small island located in the south western part of North Ireland. It’s accessible by a ferry from a town called Enniskillen. The island is a monastic site with lots of historical building ruins there. This Round Tower is one of the icon of the site – it has to be because it’s the most intact building remain there and indeed even if other buildings were still in good conditions, no one could miss the tower because of its height.
Even though it’s a tourist spot, the island is actually very quiet. The primary reason is because it’s only accessible by ferry and the ferry itself isn’t very large. As a result the number of people who can go there at one time is very limited and even though it’s not a big island, it’s big enough to give everyone plenty of space to walk around.
