Skellig Michael

While Skellig Michael might be overshadowed by tourism juggernauts such as Rio de Janeiro or London, you'll find this Kerry destination is still worth checking out.

Skellig Michael Vacation Packages

It can be found roughly 210 miles from Dublin, the capital of Ireland.

Let the sun's rays light up your face and the waves crash over your feet. We recommend Banna Beach, 50 miles to the northeast, or Rossbeigh Beach, 30 miles to the northeast.

If you want to take a walk on the wild side of life, check out a couple of the Skellig Michael region's natural environs. Skellig Experience Centre is 11 miles from Skellig Michael, while Slea Head sits 25 miles away.

Make your way to Kildreelig to visit Ballinesker Beach and Heatherhill Stables. It's approximately 9 miles from Skellig Michael, and well worth the trip. If you still have the time to see more of this part of the country, go to Portmagee and swing by Siopa Chill Rialaig and Ballinskelligs Castle. They're located just 11 miles from Skellig Michael.

Head 12 miles northeast from Skellig Michael to end up in Ballinskelligs. There's plenty to do there, including Waterville Beach, Skellig Bay Golf Club and Waterville Golf Links. Eightercua Stone Row and The Story of Waterville Cable Station Exhibition are also popular options.

Get a taste of the array of aromas and flavors of Kerry by trying its most popular food and drinks.

Plunge into the depths of this gastronomic scene by sampling the local ingredients. Among the most important are mutton and pork.

Any self-respecting foodie should make sure they sample Irish stew (lamb or mutton with potato, onion and parsley) and drisheen (blood sausage) before enjoying other local dishes.

Desserts, such as sweet seedcake loaf, are definitely worth trying.

Kick back with a couple of bottles of Murphy’s Irish Stout, a well-loved beer.

If you are in the mood for an alcohol-free beverage, one option is Club Orange (similar to Fanta).

Enjoy the spirit of national pride on the 17th of March for Saint Patrick's Day.

Experienced adventurers are old hands at goodbyes, but that doesn't make them any less difficult. When it's time to leave the gorgeous Kerry region, we wouldn't be surprised if you were already organizing your next trip!

Once you're packed and ready to get your flight, remember that the most convenient airport is approximately 50 miles to the northeast.
