The Skellig Experience

In THE SKELLIG EXPERIENCE CENTRE you can experience many aspects of those offshore Skellig islands while remaining on the dry land, in a custom built, stone clad, grass roofed, prize winning building located right on the waterfront beside the Valentia Island bridge at Valentia, County Kerry!

Here, through re-creations and models you can study the works and lives of the Skellig monks of the early Christian period, their activities, their endurance and their dedication in gaining a foothold on a tiny, inhospitable, offshore island and creating a community there that survived for some 600 years. In The Skellig Experience's 80-seat auditorium, through a 16-minute audio-visual presentation you can follow the footsteps of those Skellig monks, and wonder at the legacy of architecture that they left behind.

Here too, in The Skellig Experience�s re-created Skellig sea cliff, with life-size models and related presentations, you can get to know, by sight and sound, the life and times of the seabirds of Skellig.

The Skellig Experience Centre also offers � again through artefacts and realistic re-creations - an experience of Skellig lighthouse its history its light keepers and its service to mariners since the 1820�s.
