    Lots to learn, steeped in history and boat tours available although we didn't go on the tour. Very friendly staff and lovely restaurant with a great view of Portmagee  more »

    This is a quite small museum (or "experience') but well worth the nominal cost and time to visit. An hour or so is adequate. There is a cafe and gift shop although we did not utilize these. This "Expe...  more »

    With 5 Euro per person it is not the best priced activity you can do around the area, especially for that the lighthouse is not too big. Still, the view you get from the lighthouse top is worth it, es...  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!

    Amazing history. Go on the boat tour with Captain Noel to see the Skelligs up close and personal. Excellent customer service on the cruise!

    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

    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.
