Valentia Island is absolutely wonderful - the scenery is magnificent, but I guess we were just incredibly lucky with the weather. The sea was so blue, waves crashing on the shore showing white horses, in the distance the hills, the green grass, just everything. Also near the Lighthouse is the Valentia Tetrapod Trackway showing information about this animal which walked in this area 385 millions years ago. It just makes you think that all this was here before you and will still be there long after you've gone. Also nearby is the Slate quarry which is also worth a visit - the slate was used to roof the Paris Opera House, the Houses of Parliament in London, and Charing Cross, Waterloo and Blackfriars railway stations.
