Since first opening to the public in 2013, the lighthouse at Cromwell Point on Valentia Island has proven to be extremely popular with visitors and has shown a steady growth in numbers.
The lighthouse is a key attraction and a “must see” on any island tour.
Due to its unique location at the entrance to the sheltered anchorage and harbour at Knightstown, the lighthouse complements the other visitor attractions on the island by facilitating an itinerary starting in Knightstown and finishing at Bray Head.
Valentia Island Lighthouse is one of the founding members of the Great Lighthouses of Ireland, a branded partnership established in 2016.
The success and development of Valentia Lighthouse project was made possible by involvement and voluntary work of some great people both within and outside of the Valentia Island community. A key factor for advancing the project has been fantastic collaborations with our partners whose support has been and continues to be invaluable. A big THANK YOU to everybody involved!
