Valentia Island Lighthouse

Embrace the rugged and exposed elements of the southwest coast and gain an understanding of what life was like for a lightkeeper and their families on Valentia Island. Located in one of the most scenic points on the edge of Europe, Valentia lighthouse is home to the most westerly harbour light on mainland Ireland. This light guides vessels from the sea and leads them through the northern entrance of Valentia Harbour and up past Harbour Rock.______________________________________________________________________________Opening Hours: April to October, 7 days a week 10:30 am to 6:00 pm (last tour at 5:00 pm)

Eighth Wonder at the Valentia Transatlantic Cable Station

Over 150 years ago, the first successful transatlantic telegraph cable was laid between Valentia Island in Ireland and Heart's Content in Newfoundland, Canada, connecting the Old World with the new World. The wire that changed the world, the Eighth Wonder of the World, reduced the time to send a message across the ocean from weeks to minutes and heralded the birth of global communications. The laying of the Transatlantic Cable is a story of human endurance, science, adventure and genius and is told in the immersive visitor experience at the Valentia Cable Station. Listen to the entrepreneur Cyrus Field I and the Knight of Kerry regale about their adventure, try to send your own morse code message and try to break the code, learn about the underwater cables of today and how communications technology has changed.____________________________________________________________________________Opening Hours: Thursday to Sunday 10:00 am to 5:30 pm (last entry at 5:00 pm). Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday - Closed._____________________________________________________________________________Please note there is no parking available on the Cable Station premises. Parking is available 200 meters before the Cable Station Building across from the Church of Immaculate Conception.
