Billy is a great host. The island is a fascinating place to visit after a short boat trip. Several old buildings from a time gone by and an amazing location and views.

I really enjoyed our boat ride, with great guide. Once on the island we joined a guide-led tour which was very informative, then had time to explore on our own. Returned by 2:30.

The Blasket Islands and Kerry in general are just stunning without a doubt. But to get the boat alone is far too expensive to justify the trip. The staff were lovely. You get a small map naming the ruins on the island and that was...More
