St. Finbarr's Oratory, Gaugane Barra, Ireland. According to Cardinal Timothy Manning, Archbishop of Los Angeles, as posted on the St. Finbarr's Oratory website:

This hallowed shrine of St. Finbarr dates back to the 6th century where he communed with God. The surrounding mountains were his cloister and the lake was for him the mirror of God’s grandeur, stone cells commemorate his hermitage. From here he journeyed the river-way of the Lee to become the first bishop and founder of the church and city of Cork. He died in 623AD and hist feast day is celebrated on September 25th.
