Skellig Rocks

If conditions permit a visit to this UNESCO World Heritage Site is highly recommended. Since 1996 protection and regulation regarding visits to the site has increased and visits are highly dependendent on weather conditions. At Kells Bay House, if the ferries are sailing, we can arrange your passage and guide from Portmagee.

Visiting Skellig Michael requires an early start and a full day should be allocated. The kitchen at Kells will be delighted to prepare a packed lunch for your trip. Since the filming of Star Wars, ‘The Force Awakens’ on the islands in 2014 demand for this trip has increased and it is well worth visiting to be astounded as to how the early Christian monks sustained a community here for over 600 years.
