Mountshannon is a village and parish in east Clare. The village is on the western shore of Lough Derg, close to the Galway border and 25km north of Killaloe. Mountshannon has four pubs, one of which is a hotel, a corner shop/cafe, a restaurant, a garage/shop and a pizzeria. It is a starting point for visiting the nearby Inis Cealtra, or Holy Island. Now uninhabited, it was once a monastic settlement. It has a fine round tower, and the ruins of several small churches, as well as part of 4 high crosses and a holy well. The cemetery on this island is still in use, the coffins being transported from the Clare side in small boats. There is a stone with a hole in it, through which lovers held hands and promised to be true. Boat trips can be taken...
