    One of the most amazing experiences in Ireland. No one should miss it. Truly one of Ireland’s jewels. Once af the cliffs don’t forget to look back. One can see as far as Carrantouhill. Amazing views of Kerry mountains and lakes.

    Visited in August 21. Incredible experience and cant wait to go back. We took our two kids age 12 and 14 and it was perfect. I probably wouldn't take younger kids. Left Portmagee onboard Celtic Victor with Skellig Coast Adventures and couldn't recommend more. Crew Donal and Ger were great. We will definitely go back.

    €4 per person, €5 minimum spending which is ridiculous. At least you will have parking and toilets.

    Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

    Wonderful tour of the majestic coastline. Great views of the Kerry cliffs from the water. But mostly Jay went out of his way (literally) to make the outing a highlight of the trip.

    We took the Skellig Walker out to the Skelligs and had an absolutely amazing time. The boat was spotless, spacious, indoor and outdoor seating as well as a toilet, as none are available once you get out to Skellig Michael. Kav along with the other crewmember (cannot recall his name unfortunately), were most professional and courteous, great sense of humour, and offered much historical and practical information on the islands.



    We would highly recommend this fine boat and crew to anybody planning to go out to the Skelligs.



    Thank you so much.

    We had a great time. Nealie and Cornealia were so nice, really informative and friendly with a bit of craic thrown in for good measure. They looked after everyone really well. I would highly recommend them.

    We were blessed with the weather on what started as a dreary Saturday. The sun came out and the sea was like a mill pond. We had driven from Carlow especially to do this as on 2 previous attempts to even see the Skelligs from land it was too foggy. Our skipper was highly entertaining and knowledgeable about the area & the islands. We got up close and personal with both Skellig Beag & Skellig Michael. I could not recommend this trip enough... €40 for (over) 3 hours was worth ever penny. Next time we will attempt climbing it. There is nothing I could fault. The Skellig Flyer was a new boat and may need seat belts 1000hp apparently 😂.

    Brilliant trip. The two lads on the boat were more than helpful. Patjo, the main man, gave us full rain gear and we woulda been lost without it.

    We visited on August 5th. Casey's Tours were wonderful--they kept us informed along the way so we knew what to expect. We were lucky with great weather. In anticipation of the high swells, I took Bonine for motion sickness. The Captain also gave sugared ginger to anyone interested. As a result, the boat ride out and back was comfortable for me. A couple of people on our boat did become ill. The Captain also provided us with ponchos so we wouldn't get wet on the way to the island. We were able to get in and out of the dock on the island without difficulty. Casey's Tours and our boat captain handled the trip beautifully. The island itself was amazing. So much interesting history and beauty. We also saw lots of Puffins. All in all, a great trip that I would do again.

    A lovely little shop beside our hotel in Portmagee. We bought our Skellig Michael souvenir tshirts here as they had a different selection from what was available at the Skellig Michael Discovery Centre. This shop also had some other lovely souvenirs and a great selection of Skellig Michael Chocolate. They also had a lovely fudge selection which took a lot of effort for me to resist. We enjoyed our chat with the staff member there who was a fellow Canadian. Nice spot!
