About the location
CHAPELTOWN, COUNTY KERRY
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!
