Valentia Island is one of the more scenic untouched areas off the Kerry coast. It is easily accessible, with a bridge from Portmagee and a car ferry running from Knightstown between the months of April and September. It is in close proximity to the towns of Caherciveen and Waterville. The island itself has an abundance of places of interest that are sure to accommodate all tastes.
For the walker there are spectacular views from every road, whether you venture to the lighthouse to soak in the Atlantic Ocean or to the Grotto (formerly a slate quarry whose slate once roofed the Houses of Parliament and Commons and was used as far afield as the San Salvador Railway). The fishing enthusiast will also be accommodated with a plentiful supply of shore based fishing locations and deep sea angling charters. The historian will find Valentia a gold mine with the Skellig Islands (a World Heritage Site) just off it's coast, once home to sixth century monastic settlement and the recent finding of dinosaur footprints dating to between 350 and 370 million years old, the second oldest in the world, on the island itself.
This cottage is one of three self catering cottages, which are located in three different areas of Valentia Island.
