About Us

Welcome to Valentia Island’s Highest Point. Walk or drive to the top of Geokaun Mountain, one of the Ring of Kerry’s highest points, located in Valentia Island, one of the most westerly parts of Ireland and indeed Europe where you will enjoy 360 degree views at the summit. Perhaps you like mountain climbing, hill walking or maybe you just like to take a leisurely stroll to see what nature has to offer.

Before you get to the top, walk the short path to Fogher Cliffs and enjoy the panoramic landscape from the viewing deck. Read about the path through the cliffs which women used long ago to go to the bog.

At the peak there are three viewing areas – The Miner’s View, The Shepherd’s View & Carraig na Circe along with 36 information plaques relating to the views (i.e. Skelligs, Blasket Islands, Bray Tower), along with the Cable Station, Flora & Fauna, Wildlife and many more.
