  • 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.
  • Cool film, small museum. Next best thing to getting out to the rock.
  • Not too much to look at or be interested in unless you were a history nut, but still a cool place to visit
  • Informative and they have great Skellig Wars t-shirts.
  • Beautiful and humble this is a great place to learn about the Skelligs
