Skellig Ring

Sight Seeing

  • The Skellig Ring takes in some of the most spectacular coastal views in Kerry. There are spectacular views of the Skellig Rocks and Puffin Island from Coomanaspig Pass and from around St.Finan's Bay. On the way to Portmagee are the Kerry Cliffs, the highest in the county. In Portmagee you'll not only find the Skellig Experience Centre, but also fine seafood restaurants. From Portmagee take the bridge onto Valentia Island to visit the pre-dinosaur Tetrapod Trackway made more than 350 million years ago and also explore the magnificent gardens at Glanleam. A fine walk brings you to Bray Head. The ferry from Renard will get you back to the mainland. Travel on to picturesque Waterville, home to the world famous championship golf links and Loher Stone Fort. From Waterville return to Ballinskelligs.
    The Skelligs
    A boat trip to the Skelligs UNESCO World Heritage Site is a must on your holidays in County Kerry! These craggy islands rise dramatically from the ocean 15 kms off the western coast. Little Skellig is a bird reserve, with nearly 20 thousand gannets nesting here each year. The larger Skellig Michael with its cliffs rising over 200 mtrs above the sea once was the westernmost outpost of Christianity in Europe. The monastic settlement consists of two oratories, six beehive huts, church and graveyard, which can all be reached on over 600 steps cut into the rocks. Boat trips to the islands take place during the summer months from Portmagee and from Ballinskelligs, weather permitting.
    The Ring of Kerry panoramic route has long been one of the favorite sightseeing tours of Ireland and is leading around the Iveragh Peninsula passing through a succession of magnificent landscapes.
