Overview

Get away from it all with Valentia Harbour Tours on an amphibious boat. Take a trip to beautiful uninhabited Beginish Island with a stunning backdrop of the Skellig Coast on the Wild Atlantic Way.Walk along the beach and reflect on the Viking house, Monastic Church Island and the families who previously lived there. The trip is run by Tommy and Aine O Connell and family who have a sheep farm on Beginish Island. Working everyday in summer, weather permitting. Come away refreshed.

Fully accessible boat, suitable for ages and levels of sea legs. The whole trip was thoroughly enjoyable and an amazing oppertunity to sea another side to the beautiful Iveragh peninsula. Thanks to Tommy and Crew for a brilliant day out

We were not operating in 2013. Maybe mistaken with another tour.
