fake, is
6 m. long and 3 broad. On the side of
one of the mountains is O’Sullivan’s Cascade
which falls about 70 feet into the lake with a
tremendous roar ; and opposite this cascade is the
island of lnnisfallen. The promontory of Muc-
russ divides the upper from the Lower lake, and,
on passing round its extremity into the upper lake,
there is a celebrated rock, called the Eagle’s Nest,
which produces wonderful echoes. The upper
fake is 4 m. long and 2 broad, and from the moun-
inins descend a numher of beautiful cascades. The
islands in this lake are numerous, and afford an
amazing variety of picturesque views. Tfie cen-
tre lake is small in comparison with the other two,
ind cannot boast of equal variety ; but the shores
are indented with bays, surrounded by dark groves
of trees The E. boundary is formed by the base
of Mangerton, down the steep side of which de-
scends a cascade, visible for 150 yards: this fall
of water is supplied by a circular lake, near the
summit ofthe mountain, called the Devil’s Punch-

curiosities of Ki-llarney.
