    Valentia is a beautiful island and a recommended extension of the classic Ring of Kerry. With the ferry back and the bridge back (or vice versa). Fantastic vegetation due to its mild and humid climate. A nice destination is the lighthouse, which is located on a cliff. There is an entrance fee of some € 's asked, not unreasonable. The lighthouse itself is accessible via a spiral staircase. Nice views. There is also a cosy teahouse in the dwelling of the former lighthouse keeper. It is difficult to photograph the lighthouse well, by buildings around it.

    The drive was very fun (technical, windy, narrow) but of course, you had to pay to even get close to the lighthouse.
