These self catering holiday homes in Valentia have direct access from site to a well equiped public playground with tennis court and playing field and are just a short walk from the quaint village of Knightstown at the southern end of the island. There is a small sandy cove only 800m from the properties with numerous larger ones within easy reach. The village has a local shop, a pub, some good restaurants and of course its pier which links it by ferry to Portmagee on the mainland though there is also a land bridge.
This island on the southern Kerry coast is extremely picturesque and a real haven for wild life. As such it is a great favourite with hikers and bird watchers as well as families who come to enjoy the lovely sandy coves and beaches. There is plenty to do on the island including sea angling with charters available from Knightstown, kayaking, sailing, power boating, scuba diving, rock climbing and abseiling from Dive Valentia. There are a number of marked walks and trails through the natural sights of the island such as Geokaun - the highest mountain on Valentia Island at 888 feet which has 360 degree panoramic views of the Skellig Islands, Bray Head, Atlantic Ocean, Blasket Islands, Dingle Peninsula, McGillycuddy Reeks and Valentia Harbour.
There are a number of local visitor attractions including The Tinnies, the Old Slate Quarry (recently reopened for use), the 6th century monastic settlement on Skellig Rocks and Derrynane House & Gardens.
