Valentia Transatlantic Cable Station 

Valentia Island, Co. Kerry


Over 150 years ago, the first successful transatlantic telegraph cable was laid between Valentia Island in Ireland and Heart’s Content in Newfoundland, Canada, connecting the Old World with the new World.  The wire that changed the world, the Eighth Wonder of the World, reduced the time to send a message across the ocean from weeks to minutes and heralded the birth of global communications.

Now this station is officially on the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative List, and a must-see for any history buff. Plan your visit on the Valentia Island website
