Interesting place, Lambay Island! Been occupied for thousands of years. Barings, the bank people, currently own it. Our tour did not include a visit to the houses, which was a bit disappointing, but it was enjoyable nonetheless. Our guide was quite good, plenty of knowledge and yarns to keep us entertained and informed. Varied wildlife to look out for, including wallabies, deer, puffins and gannets. And others. Buildings designed by Edwin Lutyens. Very enjoyable day out, I must say

I've grown up in the north of County Dublin and like many people gazed across the sea at the mysterious Lambay Island. I've longed to visit the island, but never knew how to go about it. Last weekend I went on the Lambay Island tour with Skerries Sea Tours - Gerry and George were our guides - and the experience exceeded all of my expectations. Gerry is a fount of knowledge and a wonderful storyteller, bringing the challenges and pleasures of island living to life. Both he and George clearly have a deep love and respect for the island and the people and wildlife who live there, and their affinity for the place is contagious. I'd highly recommend this tour whether you are visiting from abroad or being a tourist in your home county. I'll definitely be returning to Lambay.

A magical day. I flew over from London for the day knowing that a friend’s invitation to tour Lambay was priceless. Met a group in Malahide and we crossed in twenty minutes. We walked from the boathouse in the harbour to the highest point and on to The Nose, amidst curious wallabies with joeys and agile fallow deer running with fawns, under gulls wheeling in the stiff sea breeze, to see seals, gannets, kittiwakes, fulmars, oystercatchers, guillemots, razorbills and the whirring-winged iconic puffins. The rare Lutyens architecture, a Real Tennis Court - too many wonderful things to describe. And we were taken out there by Skerries Sea Tours. Easily. Safely. You’ll be doing yourselves a big favour if you get the opportunity. Do it.

We went to the island with a group of friends. We were blessed with the weather which was warm and sunny throughout. Our tour guide, Gerry, really knew a lot of the history and his love of the place shone through. The tour was at gentle pace and we saw wallabies, deer, and plenty of bird life. The journey over was about 20 mins and we felt in safe hands in the 11m covered rib with Eoin at the helm. It was a very special day that we will not forget.

Having viewed Lambay and Rockabill from afar for many years, I was looking forward to the trip and was not disappointed. Eoin was a great guide, very informative and attentive. I knew little about the Tayleur shipwreck all those years ago and was intrigued by the details. If interested in birds and wildlife - trip is a must. The walking tour on Lambay appears very attractive and may do this in 2019. Boat trip exhilarating!!
