Point of Interest
“As part of a trip around the Ring of Kerry this is a perfect stop (during the summer), and as we are only an hour from Tralee or Killarney you can easily fit us in as something to do in south Kerry. On a day trip you will see fabulous views at ‘Mountain Stage’ just outside Glenbeigh, Valentia Island (by ferry) with the site of the first transatlantic cable, Portmagee which is one of Ireland’s cutest (working) fishing villages. We are just 15 minutes off the main Ring Of Kerry road.”
