Valentia Island

Discover the secret of the unspoilt natural, historic island of Valentia, the accessible bridge linked Atlantic Ocean island. The angler, sailor, kayaker, bird watcher, star gazer, cyclist, swimmer, historian, geologist, photographer, artist and hiker can all enjoy both land and sea.

Swim in the crystal clear waters, jump off the pier or enjoy a variety of walks from 1 to 4 hours. Travel by boat to a nearby deserted island, rent a kayak or sail boat or watch the spectacular sunsets. Take an unforgettable boat trip to the famous Skelligs islands, play golf on world class golf courses or use Valentia Island as a base for touring The Skellig Coast, The Wild Atlantic Way or The Ring of Kerry.

In Knightstown, visit the playground, play tennis, exercise at the outdoor gym or take a heritage walk around the village. Sip a cappuccino in a cafe or on a patio or join the locals for a pint in one of the pubs. Browse the gift shops, book shop or tourist office. Visit the Heritage Centre, ice cream parlour, sensory garden or nearby beach and sub tropical gardens, healing well and energy point.

Sample the gourmet delights that the Knightstown pubs and restaurants have to offer.

Feel what it’s like to be on the edge, where land meets the sea, as Valentia island is the most westerly inhabited island in Europe.
