Visit Skellig Michael and the small Skelligs

The Skelligs rocks are located 12 km off the south Kerry coastline. This is a spectacular site as the two rocks just thunder out the sea in a fierce race to the sky and some days they reach it.
The Skelligs rocks enjoy a worldwide reputation, each in their own merit. Skellig Michael is a world famous archaeology site of a well-preserved monastic site of the early Christian period. It is an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The small Skellig is not to be outdone; it is recognized worldwide as the second largest colony of pairs of gannets in the world with an approximate 27,000 pairs.
Now that you have gained this little piece of information why not book with us your trip to climb the steps to the top of Skellig Michael. A once in a life time opportunity.
