Valentia Island

Valentia Island is one of Ireland’s most westerly points. It’s in the Buffer Zone of the Kerry International Dark Sky Reserve, and the far side of the island can provide great stargazing skies. See the website for a link to recommended stargazing spots. “The skies are always dark during the winter.”
