  • Lovely staff and informative film, but there was not much else and what there was needs to be modernised. Rather disappointing.  more »
  • We were expecting this to be more of a visitors center but it's more so a gift & trinket shop. If you want to see anything more you'll have to pay an entrance fee. There is a cafeteria on site but we ...  more »

  • Very informative, the visitors center is nicely kept, and the staff is lovely. However, the center is a bit smaller than expected and took much less time to get through the exhibit. Try the Beef Lasagna in the cafe, it's quite wonderful!
  • Lovely building in a fantastic setting very nice staff too. The prices in the cafe were slightly extortionate but that is to be expected in any of these visitor centres
  • Well we didn't realize that you had to book the tours to Skellig Islands so far ahead, so we weren't able to do anything here. We did eat some Irish Stew at their cafeteria and it was delicious!
  • Really pretty inside great visitor centre and staff very nice.Restaurant and cafe nice also with seating outside with breath taking viewz
  • If you cannot get to Skellig Michael because of weather, or price, or seasickness, this is the next best thing. Informative film of the history of Skellig with tour guide narrative. After the film you may want to purchase one of several DVD recordings of Skellig, Ring of Kerry or other regional sights for 4 euros. Great vacation gift, in my humble opinion. Coffee shop with full window wall. Great to sit and sip while the rain slaps the window. Jumping off point for boats to Skellig. Lovely little gift shop and customer toilets available. Manager John is always on hand to assist as needed.
