This is a very interesting visitor centre with fantastic information about the Skelligs. There are also great models and a short film to give an insight into life on the islands.
I visited the skellig experience on the 29th of July. Wow, was I pleasantly surprised the moment I walked in then door we were greeted by the friendly staff.
We had a wonderful trip out to the Skellig Islands with the Skellig Experience. Everyone working in the venue were so nice and professional. Nothing was a problem and very friendly towards our young kids.
A day in Heaven!
We had a magical day. Everything was perfect, the team on the land and on the boat, the gorgeous Skellig Islands and the weather! Ihighly recommand that experience it is really worth it!
The whole family really enjoyed the boat trip, despite not being able to land on the island. It was great to see the visitor centre before and get all the background.
Lovely centre giving the history of the islands and how life was lived there. Audio film goes into details of life and how they survived isolated on this island.
Amazing journey to Skellig
An amazing ride out across the swelling Atlantic to visit Skellig Michael. It's not for the faint at heart, or those who get easily sea sick. But expertly captained and truly an amazing sight to behold. A very unique experience.
Got it for my parents and they absolutely loved it Well worth the money Will definitely be going myself soon
