We took this tour at the end of August and it was a once in-a-lifetime experience. We had strong winds and drizzle that day, but everything operated smoothly and the crew was friendly, professional, and on time. They did warn us the steps on the Skellig get slick in those conditions, but even though the wind was a little harrowing,... 更多
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 with them many months in advance via e-mail, but it appears their website has now... 更多
Only a limited number of visitors are allowed to land on Skellig Michael every day and only a limited number of boat operators go there. Casey's did a fine job of getting us there and back again -- with a stop to see the roosting birds on little Skellig -- safely.

The seas were quite rough on the way out to the island, but Brendan's obvious experience and professionalism made us feel very comfortable. You are travelling with a group of boats.

I've never been in a small boat on the open sea and it was rough. We were given heavy duty raincoats and it's a... 更多
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... 更多
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... 更多
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... 更多
