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

Early in the planning stages, I knew that a landing tour of Skellig Michael was something I wanted to do. Book early! Skellig Michael is a UNESCO World Heritage site and as such, there are a limited number of approved vendors and each boat is...More

Everything you read about this island is correct. It is incredible. Puffins, stairs, monk quarters, and of course Star Wars. It is also true you need to be in pretty good physical shape up all those stairs. However it’s also true that it’s very difficult...More

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.

Beautiful scenery on way to Skelligs on boat & of course from the top. The monastery is very impressive. Well worth the 600 + steps!

I would say pretty definitively no. The season is determined by the Office of Public Works (part Irish governing body) which takes it out of the individual sea captain’s and boating company’s hands.
