Portmagee, Co. Kerry

Portmagee (An Caladh in Irish) is a village on the coast of County Kerry on the Iveragh peninsula, south of Valentia Island. The name in Irish means 'the ferry', referring to its purpose as a crossing point to Valentia island. Access to the island is now via a bridge from Portmagee.

The village also serves as a departure point for tourists travelling to visit 'Skellig Michael', an island off the coast featuring a 6th century monastic settlement.
