DISCOVER THE SKELLIG EXPERIENCE CENTRE ON OUR AMAZING RING OF KERRY DAY TOUR, where you can experience many aspects of this dramatic UNESCO world heritage site while remaining on the main land.

Your discovery journey takes you around the Ring of Kerry, where we will unlock its hidden cultural secrets before taking a wondrous tour of the Skellig Experience Centre, where you will have the opportunity to study the works and lives of the Skellig monks of the early Christian period and gain a greater understanding and appreciation of this remarkable early Christian settlement. The Island of is situated 13 miles of the coast of Kerry and rises up to over 230 m above sea level. On it sits a 6th Century Christian monastery that is an important UNESCO world heritage site and it is home to the world’s second largest Gannet colony and the colourful and photogenic Puffins.
