Valentia Island and Over the Water Geosites

The landscape of Iveragh has been shaped by geological forces over hundreds of millions of years. Over the past 390 million years the area has been covered by hot deserts, shallow tropical seas, and thick ice sheets. These events have been recorded within the rocks and geologists use this hard evidence to reveal the landscapes, environments, and climates of the past. The area around Valentia and ‘Over the Water’ from Cahersiveen tell a captivating part of the Iveragh story.
