Valentia Island Lighthouse

Embrace the rugged and exposed elements of the southwest coast and gain an understanding of what life was like for a lightkeeper and their families on Valentia Island. Located in one of the most scenic points on the edge of Europe, Valentia lighthouse is home to the most westerly harbour light on mainland Ireland. This light guides vessels from the sea and leads them through the northern entrance of Valentia Harbour and up past Harbour Rock.
