I don't get seasick... but four out of the ten people on my tour boat vomited. My son was terrified at first, but then he was okay once he got to sit in the cabin. The island is amazing and gorgeous of course... but I...More

Got to know of Skelligsrock through Tripadvisor. In fact our entire trip to Ireland was based around the date of our tickets from SkelligsRock to Skellig Michael. Booking was a breeze. The firm called up the B&B Portmagee Heights we were staying in, to co...More

We went on an Eco Tour with Paul Devane. What an experience! It was a calm and sunny day and the islands could be seen in all their glory.

Totally lived upto it’s reputation. In awe of this natural wonder and what people have done in attempts to take it.

Skellig Rock is an absolute must see. the gannots on little skellig are amazing. We were a group of 6 and all of us just fell in love with it.

Make reservations early because these cruises sell out. Wear rain gear as we got drenched on the way back. Dramatic scenery. Thousands of birds and rocks coated with their excrement, making them look white. One of the scariest places that I have ever seen.
