Extra Details on our location.
A road bridge connects the island to the mainland and the Ring of Kerry, but Valentia itself offers peace and tranquility and the added attractions of water activities and spectacular views over the Atlantic.
Ballinskelligs and its Blue Flag beach is a short drive away and there are pubs, shops, and restaurants all around the area at Waterville, Cahirsiveen and Portmagee. A boat trip to the Skelligs or a drive or walk along the many mountain roads will suit some and the water sports and golf nearby will be an attraction for others. The Ring of Kerry awaits for those who wish to tour further afield, but the main attraction here is the beautiful setting and country living.
This is a suitable property for families, fishing and sailing enthusiasts and those who wish to relax in a countryside setting, and get away from it all, but within easy reach of the attractions of south west Kerry, from art galleries, to historical sights and sea views with rugged coastlines. There are days out here to be treasured and this property is superb in every way, to start from and return to.

Images of Seaview House
The Kerry Region
Valentia Island lies off the South West coast of County Kerry. It is an island of great contrast and beauty. Valentia Island is accessible from the mainland by roadbridge at the village of Portmagee and by ferry service from Renard Point, which is just past Cahersiveen town. Valentia Island Car Ferry runs from Knightstown Pier, situated a half-mile off the Ring of Kerry Road, to Renard Point on Valentia Island. The ferry operates as a shuttle service, with a five-minute crossing, six months of the year, from 1 April to 1 October.
The western part of Valentia island is dominated by the barren, dramatic cliffs of Bray Head which command spectacular views of the County Kerry coastline while the mild effect of the Gulf Stream results in Valentia’s mild climate and lush, colourful vegetation.
Transatlantic telegraph cable
Did you know Valentia was the eastern terminus of the first commercially viable transatlantic telegraph cable. This vast endeavour resulted in commercially viable transatlantic telegraph communications from Foilhommerum Bay to Heart’s Content, Newfoundland in 1866. Transatlantic telegraph cables operated from Valentia Island for over 100 years.
The island’s main town
The island’s main town is called Knightstown, which was associated with the Norman Fitzgerald Clan, is reminiscent of an Anglo-Irish Village with its many stately buildings and refined ambience. The island’s historical lineage, however, goes back much further than that. Tetra pod footprints were found on the northern part of the island. These magnificent imprints of history are thought to date from Devonian times between some 350 to 370 million years ago.
An important quarry on the northern part of the island which opened in 1816 still flourishes today. The famous Valentia Slate has been used in many prominent buildings including the British House of Commons in London.

I didn’t know places like this existed in Ireland. The west coast of Kerry is amazing from the Skellig Islands to the Beaches all within a short drive from Valentia.
Breathtaking scenery, peaceful surrounding and fantastic accommodation need I say anymore!
We stayed at Dan the Masters in August, the weather was amazing and our family loved the local area. The accommodation was really good and I loved the history of the house. If you’re looking to get away from city life like me Valentia Island is a hidden gem in Kerry
