Little Skellig

On the way to Skellig Michael we passed Little Skellig, an island populated by approximately 25,000 pairs of gannets.

On the way back we cruised slowly around the island and in addition to the gannets we saw a few seals basking on the rocks. The trip was about 4 1/2 hours and it was well worth it.

To get to Skellig Michael you can catch a boat at Portmagee in County Kerry.
