Valentia Island Lighthouse

Valentia Island, county Kerry is located just west of Cahersiveen, and accessed by bridge from Portmagee or by ferry at Renards point. It is the location of the first communications cable to cross between the USA and Europe back in the 1800’s.

The Lighthouse has been restored and is now open to visitors and it is well worth doing so, I took this photo on a recent trip, just as a boat passed us, between Valentia and Beginish Islands.

    Another beautiful, evocative post, Nigel. I spent many childhood summers with my cousins around Caherciveen, so it has been lovely to revisit some of these scenic places through your recent posts.
