About
Waterville Heritage Gallery at The Skellig Gift Store provides a great introduction to the wonderful array of local heritage sites and stories, not only in Waterville, but also across the Ring of Kerry and Iveragh Peninsula on Kerry's Wild Atlantic Way. It is a super showcase of the culture and heritage of the South West region of Ireland. The unique outdoor Heritage Gallery is where you will learn about South Kerry heritage, culture, archaeology - stone forts and circles, geology, birds, flora and fauna, and local folklore and mythology. The Gallery also showcases the range of local sea life and farm life of the Skellig Coast region, an outdoor farm machinery display, a history of Kerry's transatlantic cable stations, an introduction to Kerry's International Dark Sky's Reserve, the Skellig Rocks - a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the South Kerry Gaeltacht - Uibh Rathach, Bygone days and local heroes both past and present, local and international. There are 150 information panels beautifully displayed on locally sourced Valentia Island Slate and over 300 photo exhibits and archives both in the Gallery and Craft Market. You will also read about the many beautiful places there are to visit and interesting things to see and do while on the Ring of Kerry in the Skellig Coast region. There are two audio visual screens in the adjoining Craft Market. Admission is free and there are several picnic benches in the Gallery for you to relax and take in the magnificent scenery of Waterville and Ballinskelligs Bay. Waterville village is only a five minute walk away too!

Excellent shopping experience. We were staying in Knightstown, Valentia Island, and I was looking for a gift. I used their online store, and then telephoned the very helpful shop worker (possibly owner) in Waterville to see if my chosen items were in stock. The items were delivered to me the next working day, which was fantastic. Great value and friendly service.

Travel in the off season sometimes means that the only option you have to bring something back home from your trip is from a cheap generic gift shop, this place shatters that possibility. They have a wide range of gifts, many locally made or inspired, and even a bit more of the quirky stuff if you would like. There is really something for everyone here, and we we're amazed that we could have it shipped home to us in the states for free!! You can knock out all of your souvenir needs in one place, then get back to the beauty surrounding you.

I purchased a lovely knitted cardigan that was as lovely as it looked in the advertising. It arrived quickly, and when I was worried re the tracking number not showing up yet customer service were quick to respond and explain it took a couple of days. Would purchase here again.

Excellent quality and selection of traditional Irish gifts! First store in Ireland to tell us about the tax-free system at the airport, and free shipping to the US?!?!? Amazing!
