Come aboard the Valentia Island Car Ferry and you're on your way to wonderful Valentia. The ferry operates daily from April 1st to September 30th, from 8:30 AM to 10:30PM, seven days a week on a continuous shuttle service. It can cater for 18 cars and 95 passengers. Should you visit outside this period don't worry, we also have a bridge (the longest opening span bridge in Ireland) but you will have to travel an extra 12km to Portmagee and enter Valentia via the bridge at the other side of the Island.
Valentia is a world famous island measuring seven miles by three a just half a mile off the ring of Kerry Road. Aboard the ferry you'll enjoy the visual feast of Valentia Harbour with the island laid out before you on a five minute sailing. The picturesque village of Knightstown - with its famous town clock was one of Ireland's first planned villages - superbly designed by the British architect Nimmo and built in the early 1800's.
