Surreal seeing the Skelligs up close. Made our way over with Casey Tours, small boat that seats 12 and 2 crew. We got a beautiful September day, the open Atlantic is choppy regardless though and as a result we’re unable to land on the island...More
This was the highlight of our 9 day trip to Ireland. We were fortunate enough to have a fairly clear day, although the boat ride there was a bit rough. The stairs were not as scary as I had anticipated. Once at the top, it...More
