We booked the landing tour through Casey's because they offered online bookings. The OPW was holding up permits this year for some reason and keeping Casey's tours in my browser and refreshing it daily granted me the opportunity to secure my booking the moment the...More

The boat trip round the 2 Skellig islands was well run and was about 2 and a half hours long. We circled both islands and stopped at a few vantage points to take photos in front of both islands. Our driver gave us some background...More

The weather can make or break this boat trip so pray to monks of Skellig Michael or the Jedi Knights whomever you serve that your day will be beautiful. Our day was beautiful, boat ride was perfect, dolphins, seals, seabirds, whale, and Puffins were the...More

Though we couldn't land on Skellig Michael, we did the next best things which was to get really close to both Skellig Michael and Little Skellig. We were able to see the monastic settlement up at the top of the rocky island and get close...More

We went on the first tour for the season. It is worth it and the people in charge of the boat were really friendly and knowledgeable . I highly recommend it. If you get sea sick, maybe it is something to think about.

Skellig Michael is one of the unique places in the world. There are 600+ steps to the top, but take your time and enjoy this special place.

I'd heard some questionable reviews about several of the boat tour operators, so I booked with Casey's Boat Trips because he had the most favorable reviews. I am very glad I booked with him -- everything went very smoothly during the process. I initially booked...More

Hi there! apologies if this is a stupid question, but the Landing Tour on Saturday Sept 2 that hubs and I were looking at (the only night we will be in Portmagee) is booked. Is there any sort of "waiting list" in case one someone cancels their reservation and a seat opens up? Thank you in advance and, again, apologies if this has been asked & answered someplace else!

Is the Eco Tour safe for very young children? My daughter is 17 months old and has never been on a boat. Are life jackets provided?

Island tour - yes life jackets provided but landing tour - no, steep climb, slippery rocks, wet, and weather dependent so young kids not recommended.
