The property

Knightstown 0.25 miles. Located in a holiday development on Valentia Island, one of the most unspoilt and beautiful areas of south west Ireland, is this well presented holiday cottage. This semi-detached property is set in landscaped grounds and are just a leisurely stroll to the pubs and restaurants of the quaint and picturesque fishing village of Knightstown. Well-appointed and equipped with modern appliances, this cottage is a perfect getaway location for any group. The spacious, stylishly furnished sitting room benefits from a cosy gas fire, while the three bedrooms offer flexible sleeping accommodation with a double, a twin and single room available. Outside is a lawned garden with furniture, so summer evenings with the family and friends can be enjoyed to the full. Just off site is a fun-filled playground where children can enjoy an action-packed afternoon while parents utilise the adjacent tennis court. Watersports such as kayaking, sailing and sea fishing are popular on the island with supervised summer camps operating from the pier in Knightstown, while there is a selection of sandy coves in the area, the nearest being just half a mile away. Those wishing to explore the area can be on the spectacular Skellig Ring within minutes, while the Ring of Kerry is accessible via the ferry linking Knightstown to Cahersiveen or indeed the bridge linking the island to the popular village of Portmagee. However you decide to spend your time in Ireland’s ‘kingdom county', this lovely cottage will serve as the perfect base from which to explore this wondrous place.
