Make reservations early because these cruises sell out. Wear rain gear as we got drenched on the way back. Dramatic scenery. Thousands of birds and rocks coated with their excrement, making them look white. One of the scariest places that I have ever seen.

Beautiful scenery on way to Skelligs on boat & of course from the top. The monastery is very impressive. Well worth the 600 + steps!

We had the good fortune to be able to do a landing tour. The weather was beautiful and it was so hot on the Rock that I had to take off a layer. It is certainly a challenge to climb up to the monastery, but...More

We took an eco tour and were in awe of the Skelligs Rock. We took so many pictures, but they do not do justice to what we really saw. It was a wonderful experience.

Of course most people know it from Star Wars, but even if you're not able to be one of the chosen few who get a chance to actually get onto the island, if the weather permits, go and visit. The views are stunning and the...More

The Skelligs are magically islands that create picturesque images no matter the time of day or the weather. They rise up out of a flat sea or buttress against Atlantic storms. No holiday album would be complete with their images in the collection

I would say pretty definitively no. The season is determined by the Office of Public Works (part Irish governing body) which takes it out of the individual sea captain’s and boating company’s hands.
