  • Well thought out and designed starting point to trips out to the Skellig islands. Interesting museum and good restaurant on site.
  • Great gift shop. Video about the history of Skellig Michael was a great bonus. Busy little place - which is a good sign.
  • 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.
  • Very informative, a bit overpriced for what you get. Very friendly service. You don't want to miss it if you are learning anything about Skellig. All the history and information in one place.
  • It was a good experience. Staff is friendly and helpful. Exhibition is as intetesting as you make it. You may dive deep down and read everything or just browse. Movie about Skillig Michael is worth watching if you cannot make it on the boat.
