Visit Skellig Michael in August and September

Whether you’re a Star Wars fan, history buff, bird-watcher or simply looking for beauty, visit Skellig Michael in August and September for adventure!

The two jagged, rocky spires rise out of the crashing Atlantic waves. It’s hard to imagine anyone living here. Recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it owes its origins to a group of 7th century monks who came to this desolate place to live, write and pray in the strange but beautiful stone beehive huts, looking for isolation.

But when to visit? It’s a tough call. The Skellig Islands lay 11 kilometres off shore and Irish weather is famously unpredictable. Visit Skellig Michael in August and September to explore the island at the end of peak season. Though variable, often September sees some of the best weather!

It was an absolutely magnificent tour! I thoroughly enjoyed it. The scenery was astoundingly beautiful and the pace was perfect. The week was made even more special by the personalities of our two awesome guides. I would absolutely use your company again and I will recommended it to all my friends!!!
