    “What a beautiful place.”

    2 cottages up a little lane with a spectacular view. Shops just a few minutes away. We have a large family and they all loved it

The property

Chapeltown 0.5 miles.

This lovely, detached cottage is one of two quaint holiday cottages, on Valentia Island, off the Iveragh Peninsula, County Kerry.

The largest of the two cottages, this Valentia Island holiday cottage is perfect for families and groups of friends.

The large, open plan living area provides a great place for entertaining, and the spacious kitchen area is ideal for a Valentia Island self catering cottage, while the well presented bedrooms offer a peaceful retreat for those seeking relaxation.

Only a short walk takes you to the coast, where sea angling is available, while a little further away is the beach.

After a busy day exploring, the lovely garden at Birds Cottage 2 boasts sea and countryside views, and combined with the tranquil location, it provides a wonderful setting to relax in.

With lots to see and do both on and around Valentia Island, and the whole of Ireland just waiting to be discovered, this wonderful Valentia Island self catering cottage is the perfect place for a coastal getaway.

Note: This cottage is next to Ref 1015268 and together they accommodate 15.

About the location


Knightstown 2 miles; Cahersiveen 12 miles.

Chapeltown is a quiet village on Valentia Island, which lies off the coast of the Iveragh Peninsula in County Kerry and is accessible from the mainland by ferry from Reenard Point, or via the road bridge at Portmagee. The main village of Knightstown provides restaurants, Irish pubs, entertainment and local shops and is also the departure point for a variety of sightseeing boat trips and fishing trips. The island is famed for its magnificent 'Fogher' sea cliffs, which rise majestically from the Atlantic Ocean on the northern side of the island, and the subtropical gardens at Glanleam House, which are a unique delight for visitors of all ages. The northern side of the island also offers the chance to see tetrapod footprints dating back 350 million years! A must-see is the Skelligs Experience Centre where the whole family can enjoy the history of the Skelligs Rocks, the bird life, and the under-sea life. Valentia Island offers unspoilt beaches, cycling, angling, diving and boat trips. With plenty to do for all the family it's a perfect base to explore the Ring of Kerry!
