Valentia Island: Bray Head Loop Walk

Creative Commons: Phil Champion

For a moderate trail run with the reward of iconic views, head to Valentia Island and do the Bray Head Loop Walk. This is a very scenic run to Bray Head and along the coastline at the west end of Valentia Island, including a steady climb to the Bray Head Watchtower with spectacular views of the Skellig Islands. It’s also the set location for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Access the route from the car park, just over the bridge from Portmagee.

Essentials
  • Up to 7 km (4.3 miles)
  • Hilly
  • Bray Head Car Park
  • Valentia Island can be accessed via the Maurice O'Neill Memorial Bridge in Portmagee
