Must love rocky boat rides and steep steep stairs!! I was fortunate to get on this tour as the previous days tour was cancelled due to choppy seas. The history behind the Skellig is fascinating and the view is breathtaking.

One of the most amazing places I've ever visited -- a once-in-a-lifetime experience if you're lucky enough to go. Casey's tours was great. The boat was safe and as comfortable as possible given the trip on open waters. The 2 boat operators we had were...More

Took the tour today that goes around Skellig Michael and the smaller island and eventhough it was raining, it was wonderous. Being that its 8 miles out in the Atlantic Ocean, the Captain (Jimmy) was well prepared to keep us dry as possible. Two and...More

The crew were fantastic. We had tumultuous seas on the 1 hour ride (each way) with swells of 8-12 feet and as a result a few folks on the boat got sea sick. The crew did a great job providing what support they could and...More

Casey's is just one of many boat operators authorised to land on Skellig Michael. According to their website, u can book eco (non-landing) tours now for the 2018 season & sometime mid to end of February for the landing tour.
