Owner description: 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. Come away refreshed.

“Beginish Island, a hidden gem on the ring of kerry.”
Reviewed 20 June 2011

IF you have some time to spend, and are not on a "whistle stop" tour on the ring of kerry, beginish island is a beautiful place to visit. We went on an amphibious boat that operates out of Cahersiveen, operated by valentia harbour tours. We spent 2 hours on the island. I went with a party of scouts and we booked the boat for the day, so I am not sure how if there is a regular schedule. The island has a beautiful beach, you would want to ask the locals first if it is safe to swim. There are several "Farms" on the island and not all the owners welcomed visitors, however you are free to roam around the best part of the island. We visited on a fine sunny day. You get a completely different perspective of the area from the boat than you do from the road.
