Worth booking a boat trip from Portmagee or Ballinskelligs Pier to view this world heritage site and location of Star Wars films. If you book a drop off trip, worth noting that the steps are steep and there are no facilities - not a suitable trip for children or anyone with mobility issues. You…

“Located on the Skellig Coast in the Southern Peninsulas of the Wild Atlantic Way adjacent to the Ring of Kerry, Valentia Island is still one of Ireland's best kept secrets. Our heritage as an island, the birthplace of global telecommunications, geological uniqueness stretching back 350 million years, a mix of traditional and planned built architecture, a place where you can embrace Irish culture of language music and sport - lets face it, we've got it all! Valentia has the freshest of Skellig Coast seafood, locally sourced ingredients, home baking, children's menus, pub grub and of course, the Island's very own ice-cream! Valentia Island is one of Ireland's most westerly points. It lies off the Iveragh Peninsula in the southwest of County Kerry. A car ferry also departs from Reenard Point to Knightstown, the island's main settlement, from April to October. A second, smaller village named Chapeltown is located at roughly the midpoint of the island, 3 kilometres from the bridge. The permanent population of the island is 665. It is approximately 11 kilometres long by almost 3 kilometres wide.”
