Skellig Michael

Petit Futé's opinion on SKELLIG MICHAEL

Vintage plate 2020

It is a big rock of 217 m, beaten by the winds, classified as UNESCO Heritage. You will find an abbey built in the th century. To go to the abbey, you borrow a staircase of 600 steps dug out of the rock: a monument in itself. The isolation of Skellig Michael has recently discouraged visitors, thus favouring an exceptional state of preservation. Skellig Michael also hosts many bird species. Among other things, you can observe petrels, puffin, Gannet, gulls, kittiwake…

The number of visitors arriving on the island every day is limited. It is therefore preferable to reserve during the summer months. The crossing can be done from Portmagee (1 hour 30 min) or Ballinskelligs (1 hour). Count about 25 € return. The ocean can make the crossing difficult, but it is worth it.

Ile au coté âpre qui ne se laisse aborder que par beau temps, la traversée par petit bateau soit depuis Portmagee mais aussi depuis Ballinskellig se mérite. Seul un petit nombre de visiteurs peut aborder l'île par jour (180 soit 12 personnes dans 15 bateaux). Réserve ornithologique protégée par l'Irlande, les macareux moines nous accueillent lors de la montée des marches vers le monastère chrétien du VIIe siècle. Là haut, la vue sur l'autre île (Little Skellig) et sur l'Irlande est somptueuse. Une très belle visite, un lieu à préserver.
