The source of the River Lee rises in the hills and flows into Gougane lake, and on the shore in this tranquil setting is the site of a monastery said to have been built by Saint Finbar, during the 6th century. The beautiful nineteenth century chapel which stands near the original monastery is famous for its picturesque location and richly decorated interior. St Finbar’s Oratory is the final destination for one of the five Pilgrim Paths of Ireland, St. Finbar’s Pilgrim Path, which starts 35-kilometres away in Drimoleague.
