A coastal walk on Valentia Island with views of The Skellig Islands


From the car park at Foilhommerum Bay, follow the coastal path west to the old tower on Bray Head. The tower is said to have been constructed in 1815 and used until the 1920s by naval authorities as a signal station.

Enjoy views of Horse Island, Long Island, Puffin Island, the Kerry Cliffs Portmagee and the famous Skellig Islands in the wild Atlantic ocean.

A loop walk along the north side of the headland will bring you back to the car park.

The Skellig Coast of the Wild Atlantic Way; not to be missed!
