At the bridge end of the Island you will find this distinctive building with turf covered barrel roofs contains exhibitions on the life and times of the Skellig Micheal monks, the history of the island’s lighthouses and the wildlife that call it home. A perfect option if the weather isn’t suitable to land on the Skellig or if you prefer to keep your feet on terra firma!
From April to September, it also runs 2 hour afternoon cruises around the island (perfect if you don’t have a head for heights but want to experience the Skellig). If sea conditions aren’t suitable to go around the Skellig there’s often the option of a 90 minute mini-cruise in the harbour and channel.
In March, April, October & November the centre is open from 10am to 5pm, 5 days a week, but the exact days change depending on circumstances – check ahead to avoid disappointment.
