Skellig Michael Boat Trips

Enjoy an exhilarating and breath taking journey around this UNESCO World Heritage site.

The Skellig Michael boat trips are one of the most mysterious and enchanting of our local attractions around the Skellig Rocks. These floating pyramids of sandstone have been home to some of the earliest monastic settlements in Ireland as well as providing sanctuary to fantastic numbers of bird life in the area.

Filming of Star Wars The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi took place on Skellig Michael. This amazing boat trip not only allows you to take a closer look at this beautiful UNESCO site but also hear the stories from the staff at The Moorings about the time Star Wars came to Portmagee.
