Details

Kid Friendly: Yes. Children are indeed welcome but parents or guardians should consider the child's height in safely wearing a car seat safety belt. If a child"Booster Seat" is required I can easily supply it at no extra cost.

Friendly: No.
Unfortunately, the vehicles that I have access to are not wheelchair friendly. However, as the activity level is light, my tour is available to people with mild disabilities. I am sure that I and the touring party will be able to ensure that a person with a mild physical disability is not excluded from having an enjoyable day.

Private motor tour of the Skellig Ring and Valentia Island, South West Kerry, Ireland


In 1993 a Swiss geology student, Iwan Stossel, discovered "Tetrapod" trackway fossil footprints on rocks on Valentia Island which were formed 385 million years ago. Tetrapod footprints are the oldest evidence in the world of four-legged vertebrates walking on land.

On the 13th of July 2007 about 500 yards from the Tetrapod site, the famous American free solo rock climber, Michael Reardon, lost his life after being swept into the sea by a rogue wave after free climbing Fogher Cliffs on Valentia. Such is the diversity of Valentia Island, the most westerly point of the continent of Europe, which is linked to the mainland at Portmagee.

This private tour will include Valentia Lighthouse, the Tetrapod Prints, Fogher Cliffs, the site where Michael Reardon perished, the world renowned Slate Quarry, Geokaun Mountain viewing points, the Transatlantic Cable monument, the Skellig Centre, The Skellig Chocolate Factory and Portmagee Village. Valentia Island is a special place to be seen once in a lifetime.

A Recent Review of this tour

Ray was so very cordial and adept at leading our tour! His knowledge and wit were outstanding in our experience with the Ring of Kerry. He anticipated needs for breaks to stretch our legs and lunch or refreshments. We highly recommend his excellent services.
