Ceol na Gaoite
 - Valentia Island -


Thanks to it's elevated position on Valentia Island, the Cottage Ceol na Gaoite (Irish: "music of the wind") offers incredibly spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean, to the SKELLIG ISLANDS and the Kerry Mountains as well as the beautiful village of Portmagee.
This generously proportioned holiday home has been rebuilt to the style of an old cottage from this area and offers the comfort of a new home despite the traditional ambience.
Ceol na Gaoite
is located on a 20.000sqm plot - pure tranquility, absolutely exclusive, private and undisturbed!

The basement of the house is an open plan room which offers fantastic views of the sea and the mountains. You will find a generously equipped country kitchen, a large dining area and a living room with sitting area in front of an open fireplace. There is also a separate utility room with a guest toilet.

The Cottage with its magnificent view of the Atlantic


A staircase leads to the upper floor. Here you find two large and bright bedrooms and also a bathroom with a shower and a bathtub (also with sea view!).

The Cottage is well maintained, very tastefully and comfortably furnished and equipped with many lovely details. The country kitchen is fully equipped. A large dining table in front of the bay window offers a dream view of the sea to the southwest. A cozy sitting area in front of an open natural stone fireplace accentuates the traditional atmosphere of an Irish cottage.

Outside, there are several meadows surrounded by natural stone walls and a sheltered seating area in front of the house.

Due to its location, Ceol na Gaoite is a place of peace an seclusion. Nevertheless, the long private driveway to the house leads directly onto the WILD ATLANTIC WAY with its many popular attractions. Short car rides take you to small beautiful beaches or cliffs. The mesmerizing and almost deserted coastline on the north side of Valentia Island is on your doorstep as well as the popular BRAY HEAD WALK is directly accessible from the house.

A bridge leads to the small fishing village of Portmagee (approx 3km). Here is the starting point for boat tript to the SKELLIGS! There is also a small shop, 2 pubs, 2 restaurants, 2 cafe's. KNIGHTSTOWN at the other end of Valentia Island, only a few minutes drive away, also offers pubs, restaurants and cafes.
