Valentia Island Shore Station
At the turn of the century, a block of eight terraced houses were built just on the outskirts of Knightstown (come up the hill from the pier and turn right at the church) They did not house the family that kept Cromwell Point Lighthouse but rather, the families of the relief keepers that worked on the Skellig Light and Inishtearaght Light on the Blasket Islands.
The houses are now holiday homes.
