Description

With one of the best views in Ireland our comfortable cottage is ideal for families, close to sheltered and unspoilt Glanleam beach. Valentia is connected to the mainland of County Kerry by a bridge and a ferry service.

STAR WARS fans can take a boat trip to the Skellig Islands -one of the dramatic locations visited by LUKE SKYWALKER in Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015).

The cottage which is over 200 years old is privately owned and is one of a pair that were originally part of the Knight of Kerry's Glanleam Estate. The cottage has been owned by the same family for several generations and has been sympathetically modernised.

Valentia Island is linked to the mainland by the bridge at Portmagee and by a small roll-on roll-off ferry that runs continuously during high season and links Knightstown on Valentia to Cahirciveen.

Location description from owner

The Province of Munster region

County Kerry has been described as a striking panorama of deep blue lakes, wild mountainous landscapes, rugged coastline and sub-tropical flora. It is often referred to as the Kingdom, as it is believed to be the closest thing to heaven on earth.

The Ring of Kerry is part of the mystical & unspoilt region of Ireland that has attracted visitors for hundreds of years. Its spectacular beauty is beyond question and it is a natural centre for outdoor pursuits including golf, water sports, cycling, walking, riding and the very best fishing for salmon & trout. The Ring of Kerry has some of the finest beaches in Europe that provide all the facilities for a traditional seaside holiday. Above all the Ring of Kerry provides an amazing insight into the ancient heritage of Ireland - see the Iron Age Forts & Ogham Stones, Old Monasteries and a landscape carved out of rock by the last Ice Age 10,000 years ago. Visitors to Ireland should not miss a trip to the beautiful Ring of Kerry

Gort Gower

Situated in the beautiful south west corner of County Kerry, Valentia Island has been a popular location for holidaymakers for many years. The island lies within the gulf stream and consequently the climate is mild throughout the year. Valentia is linked to the mainland by the bridge at Portmagee and by a small roll-on roll-off ferry that runs continuously during high season and links Knightstown on Valentia to Cahirciveen. Valentia is a great place to walk, cycle and take in the stunning scenery. At Valentia museum just outside Knightstown you can discover the history of the isalnd including the transatlantic cable station, the world famous slate quarry and the recently discovered Tetrapod Trackway or dinosaur footprints!

It is also in a great location on the Ring of Kerry to explore picturesque towns and villages and beautiful beaches such as Ballinskelligs and Derrynane. There are day trips available by boat from April to late September to the famous Skellig rocks - Skellig Michael was home to some of the earliest monastic settlements in Ireland and Small Skelling is a sanctuary to fantastic numbers of birdlife - the puffin is closely associated with the rocks and the Skelligs Experience heritage centre on Valentia (open April to November) brings the sights and sounds of Skelligs to life.

There are many excellent restaurants and bars on Valentia, Cahirciveen and Portmagee - seafood and fish are a speciality in many of them.
