Portmagee is a village in Co Kerry. It is located on the Iveragh Peninsula, south of Valentia Island. Its name in Irish 'An Caladh' means 'the ferry', referring to its purpose as a crossing point to the island. Access to Valentia Island is now via a bridge from Portmagee. The bridge is called the Maurice O'Neill Memorial Bridge. The village serves as a departure point for tourists travelling to visit 'Skellig Michael', an island off the coast featuring a 6th-century monastic settlement. There is also a wide selection of hotels, B&Bs, shops, pubs and restaurants in Portmagee, as well as a national school.
