  • This was a small but enjoyable lunch stop, including a short but very interesting film , a sweet young Irish dancer, good lunch and nice little gift shop. I think I would be scared to make actual trip...  more »

  • Took my elderly Dad on the ecotour trip out to the islands - we were very lucky with the weather even so the sea was rough enough to make one person on the boat sea sick - good idea not to eat before! John at the Skellig experience couldn’t have been nicer he went above and beyond to make sure Dad got on and off the boat safely plus making sure we had a nice meal and tour of the Centre after. Thanks very much John for the full Irish welcome !
  • Very nice place to visit nice for lunch too and thank you Mary for making our first visit so welcome so will be back with friends from UK visitors Susan and Cindy Browne 😂
  • Interesting place. Didn't get to go to the island because it was off season.
  • Lovely little museum all about the Skellig Islands, both historical and more recent events are outlined. Worth stopping off in even if you're not taking the tour out to the islands. Restaurant serves great food, fantastic view overlooking Portmagee from it. Nothing like food with a view.
  • Well thought out and designed starting point to trips out to the Skellig islands. Interesting museum and good restaurant on site.
