Built in 1873 for the superintendent of the transatlantic telegraph cable between Valentia and Newfoundland, this historic house has a blazing open fire and six lovingly restored rooms rich in period atmosphere – some with sea views – and modern comforts that include superb gourmet breakfasts and a sauna. Packed lunches can be arranged, as well as in-room traditional Irish seaweed baths.

Produce for breakfast comes from its veggie gardens, with eggs supplied by its chickens. One- and two-bedroom self-catering cottages (€375/450 per week) are located on the property.

Quick description via

On the most westerly inhabited island in Europe, this period residence dates back to 1873 and overlooks the sea. Just 7 km from Skellig Island and 2 km from Geokawn Mountain, it offers free Wi-Fi and free parking on site. A full Irish breakfast is served in the morning, and Atlantic Villa uses ingredients fresh from its own garden as well as local, field-reared bacon and sausages. Guests can relax in the lounge beside an open fire, and there is also a library TV room and a sauna. The traditionally furnished rooms all have picturesque views, and each also benefits from an en suite bathroom with free toiletries. Some rooms have four-poster beds. The unspoilt landscape of Valentia Island makes it ideal for outdoor activities like walking, sailing, and deep-sea diving. There are numerous world-class golf courses within easy driving distance of Atlantic Villa.
