About
Description
A halfway stopping point on world famous Ring of Kerry, this Milestone Heritage Site situated in Waterville Village traces its origins to the First Transatlantic Telegraph Cables laid from ...More Ireland/Europe to USA in 1866. The remarkable story of the telegraph and the nineteenth century's online pioneers - stay with us and experience this remarkable aspect of Ireland's history and culture. That incomparable Irish mist, we reveal the Ireland you had only dreamed of - colourful, unstuffy, and a infectiously attractive mix of styles and people. Polished floors, robust Irish cooking, medicinal whiskeys, fly-fishing and storytelling characters, Islands, mountains, and goats who own the road, ever changing skies, magical wishing wells. Believe every word you hear about the beauty of Waterville Ring of Kerry, however its the warm hearted friendly people whose healing inheritance will nurture and settle you along with a majestic landscape and its power to embrace and nourish you.Happy to organise preferred rates for Waterville Golf Links - Skellig Michael 6th Century Monastic Settlement - Fishing - Ring of Kerry Tours - First Transatlantic Telegraph Cable Walking Tours /Lectures.
