At the bridge end of the Island, you will find this distinctive building with turf-covered barrel roofs which contain exhibitions on the life and times of the Skellig Michael monks, the history of the island’s lighthouses and the wildlife that call it home. A perfect option if the weather isn’t suitable to land on the Skellig or if you prefer to keep your feet on terra firma!

A number of Skellig Boat Operators operate from the Skellig Experience – be sure to enquire about a cruise to land or circumnavigate the islands. If sea conditions aren’t suitable to go around the Skellig there’s often the option of a 90-minute mini-cruise in the harbour and channel.
