Island Life & Transatlantic Cable Tour


Stroll casually through the unique village of Knightstown that was designed during the 1800s for the Knight of Kerry. Discover the old school house within the village along with the local heritage centre that will bring the characters and stories to life that has shaped island life on Valentia to the present day.

A leisurely walk will then take you upon the original home of the Knight of Kerry, Glanleam House. While relaxing with light refreshments, you will be transported back in time through sotries of the estate dating back to the 1800s while overlooking beautiful view of the sub tropical gardens along the coastline towards Cromwell Point lighthouse.

Once refreshed, you will take a walk back towards the picturesque village of Knightstown to be once again immersed in the natural beauty of the Island.
