Visit Church Island with Skellig Coast’s Church Island Tour by Kerry Aqua Terra. Climb and gaze at the interesting restored ruins of a 6th century monastery. It was here on Church Island that monks lived their daily lives for several centuries. As time went by the monks then encountered Vikings, who later established a settlement on Beginish Island, only 200 meters away, during the early 8th century. Be fully absorbed in Celtic history to enjoy the peace and tranquility of this small island within Valentia Harbour.
This tour involves climbing uneven surfaces to access Church Island. If individuals cannot climb, the tour can still be fully enjoyed from the water's edge onboard The Navigator.
