The OLD SCHOOL HOUSE is located on the fantastic southwest tip of Valentia Island. It boasts a wonderfully beautiful view of the Atlantik, the SKELLIG ISLANDS and Bray Head.
This charming cottage was rebuilt and restored with great attention to detail, it served as a school for children in the vicinity until 1978.
The house is an ideal starting point for hikes. The popular Bray Head Walk is just a few minutes walk from the cottage. The beautiful cliffs to the north of the island are also within walking distance as you walk down to St. Brendan's Well.

Valentia Island is connected to the mainland by a bridge. A small car ferry operates between Easter and October between the island town of Knightstown and Caherciveen on the RING OF KERRY.
