Skellig Michael Toursand Skellig Michael Pilgrimages – Scenic and Cultural Tours of Skellig Michael Island

Skellig Michael is a large imposing outcrop of rock situated off the coast of SW Kerry.  It can only be accessed by boat from the mainland.  For hundreds of years it was home to a group of monks who built a monastery at the summit and carved 670 stone steps from the rock to climb to the top.  The monastery is perfectly preserved and considered one of the most striking and moving places of pilgrimage in the world. Our Skellig Michael Tours take in all the cultural and scenic aspects of the Skelligs.
