Lady Luck was on our side when we booked two seats on the Lady Clare last October to land on Skellig Michael on May 26th! The sun shone, the sea was calm and most of all there was no swell from the south-east to prevent...More

Skellig Michael was out of this world!! We came from Oklahoma and booked with the Skellig Walker. Captain Kevin and his first mate were awesome. The Walker was the nicest (and fastest) boat at the port. Yes, there is a bathroom and inside seating on...More

So disappointed that this tour was canceled. Trip advisor/viator gave no reason other than they passed on my message. Never heard from them directly. I called and they said there were no tours because of the weather. I appreciate that the weather forecast looked bad...More

First a disclaimer. We did NOT go out to the rocks, but it's on the list for a future visit. It's awesomely impressive from afar, so I can't imagine how great an experience it must be to actually go there. Check out the visitor center...More

Booked this in good faith. Within 12 hour tour cancelled and was assured that refund of €70 would be credited to my acct. Despite 3 emails it's now 11 days and nothing!! Shambolic and dishonest.

I was scuba diving in the area and the boat dropped us off on Skellig Michael. It was amazing - beautiful, bleak and spectacular. What seemed like millions of birds swirling about. Historical interest from the beehive huts built by monks during the Dark Ages....More
