Skellig Trips Are Back

Updated: Aug 15, 2021

The world heritage site was off-limits throughout 2020 but last Monday seen the first tourists land there since September 2019. The original reopening date had been pencilled for June 21. It was put back by the OPW due to poor weather.

Skellig Michael is one of the only two UNESCO World Heritage sites in the Republic of Ireland with a third being the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland. The OPW is building male and female toilets on the island which will be a welcome addition and a new visitor experience will be built over the coming summers.
