We weren't sure about going on a small boat as I get sea sick and yes you might be sea sick but however you feel whilst going or coming back will be forgotten when you climb the very steep steps on the Skellig and look about a truly unique place. How the monks did it...I haven't a clue because it... More

We booked 3 months in advance and even then there were no openings for a landing trip.It was just luck that as an afterthought I checked the website again and there was a cancellation. So the day came and there was a big storm so no boats went out but Brendan worked it out for us to go the next... More

There are a few main ideas I took away from our journey to Skellig Michael: Firstly, in my nearly 50 years on the planet, one piece of wisdom I have gained is ALWAYS opt for the waitlist. I was crestfallen to see that all landing tours to Skellig Michael are booked so far into the future that our dates, five... More

Brendan runs a professional boat service to Skellig Michael, with a nice personal touch. Would recommend!

We had been looking forward to this trip as the highlight of the holiday, and on arrival at the port we were encouraged by good organization (they knew who they were expecting) and buoyancy aids were issued to all passengers. I was not expecting such a small boat to go so fast, but once he got out of the estuary... More

Took the boat with Brendan. Very accommodating, friendly, timely, and safe trip on a day when the waters were quite choppy. Bring motion sickness meds, not sure you need them, take them anyways. Highly recommend a visit to Skellig, quite amazing, and go with Casey's!

We took the trip around the Skellig Island but did not get on the island due to high tide the trip itself was worth it it took approx 40 minutes to reach the Skellig and it is advisable to book in advance during the high season as the boats to the island can be fully booked due the small size...

Travelled to the Skelligs with Brendan's boat in challenging enough conditions. They displayed excellent seamanship in ensuring we were comfortable and successfully landed us on Skellig Michael which is worth the trip in any weather! Highly recommended!!

Like most people, we were wondering what sort of experience lay ahead with our scheduled trip to Skellig Michael. Our B&B owner had recommended Brendan Casey's boats for the trip, and we were in for a penny/in for a pound. The other reviews we had read, were all good so were we fine with it. The boat was fine, the... More
