Many people come to Caherciveen for this trip of a life time. Boat trips are made daily and you may land on the Skelligs weather permitting. The archaeoligical remains of the Skelligs, perfectly preserved Beehive huts, and Oratory, are part of an austere monastic settlement perched on the sheer side of a Rock 715 feet above the Atlantic.
The Skelligs are a haven for bird watchers. Puffins in their hundreds perch on the Skelligs and leave in Mid August. Kittiwakes and terns also perch on the Skelligs. The small Skellig Rock has the second largest gannet colony in the world.
