Der perfekte Spot um mal abzuschalten
Wir haben mit unserer Familie zwei super schöne Urlaubswochen im Cottage verbracht. Das Haus lädt zum entspannen ein. Wir haben uns alle sehr gut erholt. Siegy und Billi haben uns super nett empfangen so dass unser Urlaub direkt entspannt starten konnte. Abends bei nem Gläschen Wein hinten im Garten konnten wir schön die Ruhe genießen. Wir freuen uns schon wieder auf unseren nächsten Urlaub im Cottage. Liebe Grüße aus Köln

About the neighbourhood
The Latin-sounding name of the island is an anglicised version of the Irish Béal Inse, meaning "the mouth of the island," a reference to the harbor entrance of Valentia. The Irish name of the island itself is Oileán Dairbhre, which means "Island of Oaks". Located in the Atlantic Ocean, the island is 11 km long and 3 km wide, just under 26 square kilometers. Historical highlight was the successful laying of the transatlantic telegraph cable that connected the old and new worlds. The cable between Valentia Island and Heart's Content in Newfoundland made it possible over 150 years ago for messages to be sent across the Atlantic in minutes that previously took weeks by ship.
Getting around
A car is necessary to get around. Transport for Ireland provides a bus connection from Valentia Island to Cahersiveen where you can hop on a bus to Killarney or Kenmare.
