The Skellig Islands are not just one of my favorite places in Ireland, but one of my favorite places in the whole world! Remote, vertical, teeming with wildlife and steeped in history, they are a natural and cultural treasure unique in all the world. Let’s go!
Note: Access is tightly regulated and possible only by booking a fishing boat charter with a handful of certified skippers out of Portmagee during the summer months. Make your reservations well in advance and reconfirm the day before, as stormy seas often make the journey too dangerous.
