Description provided by property
The 18th-century Royal Valentia provides bed and breakfast in a spectacular setting on Valentia Island, just off Ireland’s west coast. Around 1 hour and 20 minutes’ drive from Kerry Airport, Valentia offers regular boat trips to the Skellig Islands, home to colonies of thousands of sea-birds and circled by dolphins and whales.
A spacious venue in Knightstown, the Royal Valentia offers rooms with scenic views of the island. Each room has tea and coffee facilities and a TV, and most have en suite facilities.
The hotel has a large breakfast area, games room and a restaurant serving bar food and main meals. There is parking and free Wi-Fi, and the hotel is just a 4-minute walk from the centre of Knightstown.
Valentia Island has many opportunities for water-sports, and many recommended diving sites. You will also find relaxing bars, cafés and restaurants, many specialising in dishes using the island’s locally caught seafood.
