Skellig Michael

A NEW three day tour bringing you around the Ring of Kerry and overnighting in QC's Boutique Townhouse in Cahersiveen for two nights. Experiencing the UNESCO World Heritage Site - Skellig Michael, situated in the Wild Atlantic ocean, 7 miles off the coast of County Kerry and recent 'Star Wars - The Force Awakens' film location.

Guests leave from Dublin on-board our Dublin to Killarney Intercity train service enjoying full Irish Breakfast en-route and arriving into Killarney just after 10am, transferring to our luxury coach to begin part one of their majestic Ring of Kerry Tour. Travelling part of the 100 mile circular route guests arrive into the attractive town of Cahersiveen overlooking Kells Bay. Guests will check-in into five star rated QC’s Boutique Townhouse (Winners of the Trip Advisor Travellers Choice Award 2016) where they will enjoy dinner and the first of a two night stay. Day two will see our guests (complete with packed lunch) transferred to the Valentia island village of Portmagee where they will begin the 7 mile sea journey out to Skellig Michael, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a recent film location for ‘Star Wars – The Force Awakens’.

This starkly beautiful rock / island was the extremely isolated home for early Irish Christian monks in the early 6th Century and is traversed by a stone staircase that clings precariously to the rock. The monastery is made up of six dry stone beehive huts and two boat shaped Oratory’s. Nowadays the only inhabitants are the myriad species of wild seabirds. Returning to Cahersiveen for night two and enjoying the final leg of the Ring of Kerry tour and return by train to Dublin, the following day completes this unique three day tour.
