Valentia Slate Quarry in southwest Ireland produces a wide range of quality products. These include floor tiles, counter tops, sills, fire surrounds, vanity units, shower trays, bath surrounds, ornamental furniture, garden furniture, steps, stairs, bar counters, name plates, grave surrounds and memorials, building stone and many other products. Over the past 10 years Valentia slate has been expanding slowly and is now a favourite by many architects who come back year after year.
As Valentia Slate Ltd. mostly sell directly from the quarry and has no sales people on the road, it is often said the Valentia Slate is Ireland’s best kept secret!. Some of its bigger projects include EU Food and Veterinary Headquarters in Co. Meath, Irish Veterinary Laboratory Headquarters at Drumshambo, Co. Leitrim,
National State Laboratory at Blackweston, Co. Dublin, Gleneagle Hotel, Killarney, Sheen Falls Hotel, Kenmare, The Marine Institute in Galway and many more.
Valentia Slate was used extensively in the construction of the Palace of Westminster especially in the floors which were designed by the famous architect Pugin. Now there is a major revamp being carried out and many of the encaustic tiles are being replaced in all the corridors. These tiles are bordered with Valentia Slate in diamond patterns and Valentia Slate Ltd. has once again secured a contract to supply borders, tiles and skirtings over the next few years as the authentic restoration proceeds. It says something for the quality of Valentia Slate when you have to replace them after 160 years!
