I was planning a last minute trip to Kerry to go to Skellig Michael. When I called Murphy Sea Cruises they were fully booked out for the dates that I wanted to travel, however they took note of my contact number and as soon as there was a cancellation they called me.
It was a pleasure to travel to Skellig Michael with Murphy Sea Cruise, they were polite and friendly. Having had a terrible experience with a competitor of theirs who are based in Ballinskelligs, it is after times like that when you value good customer service.
Also, Murphy Sea Cruise is based in Portmagee, a vibrant fishing town where the pier is in close proximity with shops and cafes, and has stunning views of Valentia Island. There is plenty of opportunity to chat to locals and visitors alike, and to see what the fishermen have caught for the day. Murphy Sea Cruise were even kind enough to offer freshly caught Pollock on our return from Skellig Michael.
Skellig Michael is a MUST when travelling to Kerry. The island with it's monastic site and wildlife is simply amazing and something I highly recommend visiting. Departing from Portmagee has the added bonus of great views of the nearby cliffs and Puffin Island.
