This was my favorite outdoor experience along my road trip across Ireland! That's saying a lot considering we visited all the hot spots: Ring of Kerry; Cliffs of Moher; Slieve League; Giant's Causeway; etc. First off, the trip out to the Skellig Islands is half the adventure! The swells were at least 10-feet high and the little blue tarp that... More

We were in competent hands, with Brendan Casey, as we travelled rough seas to Skellig Michael and the boat ride was just the beginning of an unforgettable adventure. The experience of the trek to the top, and back, will be the first memory that will always come to mind when I think back on my first trip to Ireland.

This is a MUST SEE if you are the adventurous type traveling to Ireland. I was able to book everything online which was very easy and Brendan's wife returned my emails promptly which made trip planning from Michigan very easy and efficient. We paid in cash on the boat...just make sure that the price they quoted for you is the... More

My friends booked this tour a few weeks before our trip around Ireland. It was well worth it! We stayed in Portmagee and got to the harbour at about 9:00. The staff on the boat were very friendly and gave us little bits of info about the coastline. It was a fab way to see the West Coast! We had... More

We went to Skellig Michael with Caseys earlier this month. What an amazing day. The weather was fantastic. The boat journey over was great. Lovely to see the mainland from the water. Skellig Michael itself was fantastic. The climb is tough but doesn't take too long. We had lots of time at the top and really found the monastic settlement... More

We travelled to Skellig Michael on Saturday, 30th May - the island itself was a great experience and I was so glad we got there. However, the boat trip was a little hairy to say the least and It amazed me that no lifejackets were provided (seems to be the norm on all the boats from Portmagee) - I thought... More

We planned our itinerary for 9 months, and Skellig was my top priority of must sees. On the day we had scheduled to go to Skellig, the weather was not favourable, so we waited one more day - and we rang Brendan Casey at 8 am and were told that we would be going today. Our Escort on the day... More

Although I did not climb to the top, I am so glad I had the experience of the island. Our guide was great, the boat ride was smooth and the day was great. Highly recommend this to those who are or are not faint of heart!

I booked my trip to the Skelligs with Casey's Tour about a week before my visit and I am glad I did. They were very prompt in getting back to me and giving me all the information I would need upon my arrival via email. The boat ride was a fun experience, views were stunning, we had a lovely sunny...

Brendan Casey is THA man. I was staying in Cahersiveen and he gave me a lift to Portmagee. The boat ride was amazing and the waves were huge but I felt totally safe as our captain has been doing this for 25 years and started sailing when he was 6. The visit of the island itselft is very interesting as... More
