About Us

At the bridge end of the Island you will find this distinctive building with turf covered barrel roofs which contains exhibitions on the life and times of the Skellig Michael monks, the history of the islands 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!

A number of Skellig Boat Operators operate from the Skellig Experience - be sure to enquire about a cruise to land or circumnavigate the islands. 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.
