Skellig Michael is a rugged, steep-sided island located off the coast of County Kerry in Ireland. It is famous for its early Christian monastic settlement, consisting of beehive-shaped huts, terraced gardens, and a chapel, dating back to the 6th or 7th century. Skellig Michael was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996 and has been featured in the Star Wars franchise, appearing as the location of the Jedi Temple in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”.

Our Skellig Michael Sea Cruise is the perfect way to enjoy the spectacular views of the famous Skellig Islands while remaining seated. The sea cruise departs daily from April to October and is weather dependent. Your journey will begin at the Skellig Experience Visitor Centre where you can learn all about the UNESCO World Heritage Site before getting the amazing opportunity to view the islands up close on this tour around the mesmerising rocks. The cruise is approximately 2.5 hours long and includes touring around Skellig Beag allowing you to view the second largest colony of gannets in the world before continuing the excursion to view the spectacular Skellig Michael and all it has to offer.

While on this tour you will have the chance to witness the beehive huts, the lighthouses and the steps these outstanding monks carved into the rock in the 6th century. This island is something of sheer magnificence that you wouldn’t want to miss.

Once you arrive back at The Skellig Experience Visitor Centre you can enjoy a wholesome meal in our fully licensed restaurant or browse in our Gift Shop.
