There are obviously slight differences in quality across the Skellig boat fleet but, apart from, say, the Skellig Walker, which offers the option to sit inside the cabin, the differences are not that meaningful. To put it bluntly, the quality of the boat is entirely secondary to the primary concern which is, do they have free spaces for the date you want? Any boat that can carry you to Skellig Michael is a good boat, under the current circumstances. Plenty of people would go out in a leaky bathtub if it guaranteed that they could set foot on the island.

Either of the two options you mentioned are fine. All boats meet a minimum standard to do the trip so I wouldn't worry too much about this. Just pick one and go with it.

We think we've left it too late to find a landing tour booking for Saturday 28 July 2018. We've just emailed one of the companies to ask if they know of any accommodation/ticket packages, but may not hear back for a while. Any help very gratefully received.

Thank you so much Gina. Loved the blog. Was really helpful for us - and we've now changed our itinerary to arrive in Portmagee a day earlier to give ourselves two chances at "the gate"! Wish us well, and thanks again.

Nealie Lyne is an ex-lifeboat man and has a good boat.

You can also try John Lar O'Shea https://skelligtours.com/
