Valentia Lighthouse at Cromwell Point is maintained by the Commissioners of Irish Lights and is a harbour light to guide vessels from the sea and lead them through the northern entrance of Valentia Harbour past Harbour Rock.

Valentia Island Lighthouse on Cromwell Point has stood against sea and invader for hundreds of years. Now, this gleaming white lighthouse on beautiful Valentia Island looks out across some of the most spectacular sights along the Wild Atlantic Way.

There’s much to enjoy in a visit to this lighthouse. It offers a great day out: fascinating history, inspiring views and a unique insight into island life. Take a tour of the lighthouse tower and balcony.

Be blown away by the dramatic scenery and big weather!

Soak up the stories and the science as you learn about the people and technology that have guided ships safely home from sea over the years.

It is one of the Great Lighthouses of Ireland –
