  • If you are touring Valentia Island then I'd definitely recommend the Valentia lighthouse. The cost to get in is a little bit on the pricey side for what it is as I'd suspect most places make the most of the tourist trade on this island but you don't mind if it goes to the upkeep of the place. They have made an effort to signpost most of the interesting features around the area which is informative and helpful. There are tea rooms and upstairs you have a small museum which gives you a history of the place and lighthouses. You then get to climb to the top and enjoy the views and that is about it. Nice views from up top and enjoyed my visit here.
  • Great history. Beautiful views
  • I was there two weeks ago with family, beautiful location, great, well informed guides, the lighthouse has recently got a new light bulb, relaxed, informed , great little trip altogether. Price 5 euro/adult.
  • Good place to visit
