Knights Haven - 3 bed / sleeps 5.

These self catering holiday homes are situated in the little village of Knightstown, Valentia Island and have direct access to the magnificently equipped Cracow children’s playpark, tennis court, running track and field, which overlooks the harbour and the sea. The village has a local shop, pubs serving food and a coffee shop. The Island is linked both by land bridge and by ferry (10 minutes) to Portmagee. The boat runs from the pier at Knightstown which is a stroll from the holiday homes. There is a small sandy cove only 800m from the properties with numerous larger coves dotted over the island.

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.

Valentia Island Sea Sports, located on the seafront in Knightstown, offers a wide variety of summer camps for all age groups, from four to sixteen years old over the months of June, July and August. These camps include, kayaking, canoeing, rock climbing, abseiling, crab fishing, water volleyball, sailing and of course, lots of fun and games on our twenty five feet water trampoline. We are I.S.A. approved levels one, two and three. Sailing courses, and powerboating courses are also run throughout the summer months. The kayaking and water trampoline are also open to the public daily, with wetsuits for hire. All activities and public tours are fully supervised by qualified instructors. -

This self catering accommodation in Valentia is a fantastic base from which to enjoy all that the island has to offer whilst still being within easy reach of Co. Kerry.

Beautiful house in a wonderful location. Caroline was very thorough in explaining how everything worked, and what is available on the island. The house is very modern, with all the comforts of home.
The island and surroundings are spectacular.
Looking forward to returning, sooner rather than later! Thanks Caroline. Thanks Trident.

Excellent location for a family holiday; houses are very nice - comfortable, well kept and maintained. Caroline Murphy is very good to deal with. Very hard to find fault with it...

Nice houses with excellent location in Knightstown. Adventure playground next door. Décor is a bit tired but overall comfortable. Caroline, local supervisor is extremely helpful and easy to deal with. Have stayed there four times and will be back next year hopefully.
