We loved traveling to Skellig Michael with Skellig Tours! The tour departs from Caherdaniel and it's a two hour trip out to the island. Ours was a very pleasant ride with beautiful views. Although we missed the dolphins that often accompany the boats out, we...More

The trip and island was an amazing experience. The boat had a bathroom and they even had rain jackets and pants if anyone needed. Loved the sea-worthy dogs they had on the boat. The road down to the pier was adventurous, so leave some extra...More

What an incredible day! Skellig is a must see if you can and no better way to get to the island than with John. John was beyond helpful to my unprepared family. He went out of his way to ensure us a successful trip to...More

The tour itself was quite straightforward…it’s just a long boat ride both ways, with some snacks thrown in on the way back. However, we were displeased with John’s attitude. For context, we lost our way while getting to the departure harbour (we incorrectly entered “Bunavalla...More

Definitely recommend booking with Skellig tours! We had a great day out. The journey out was a bit rough heading out to skellig Michael but there's nothing anyone can do about that. Some people on the boat did have a bit of sea sickness, so...More

Had a brilliant trip to Skellig Michael with Skellig Tours. Tour was booked few months in advance, €70 for the tour which is well worth it. About a 90 minute boat trip over and back. 2 and a half hours on the island. The island...More

Amazing experience from start to finish, don't leave Kerry or Ireland without a visit to Caherdaniel and the magical Skellig Islands which were breathtakingly beautiful. John was great to answer all my texts of silly questions and put my mind at ease before booking. Excellent...More

We sailed yesterday to Skellig Michael. Both John and Jack (and the dogs) made the trip to and from the island worthwhile. The voyage is close to 2 hours but you have more than enough time to climb the step, visit the monastery and enjoy...More

As a local (now living in Australia), I am "ashamed" to say that I had never been to the Skelligs until now. Home on a family holiday, we decided that we needed to tick this off the bucket list. John and his crew made this...More

Not very safe, not recommended for toddlers/young kids and not at all for the faint hearted. But possible if you could use a back/hiking carrier. You may not be able to make it to the top and you would have to be holding on... More

It is not a tour. You catch a prebooked boat to Skellig Michael.The cost in Summer 2015 was €60 .Its a self guided trip when you get to the rock but there are 3 well informed staff there to answer any queries you may have.
