Getting there is half the fun

Boat Front

The sea has forever been a part of life in County Kerry and nowhere more than on the Iveragh peninsula, a cul de sac off the picturesque Ring of Kerry tourist trail.

The Agnes Olibhéar slips from her berth into the Portmagee channel daily at 11 a.m., past Valentia Island and Bray Head into the Atlantic Ocean.

Across the channel is the Skelligs Experience exhibition and ahead lies a sea journey of approximately one hour and 15 minutes with land always in view. While on board Eoin Walsh regales his passengers.

Ahead, often shrouded in mist, lie the islands with Skellig Michael towering 714 feet above sea level. Frequent choppy seas and the sheer power of Nature confound visitors while the determination and devotion of those who sought spiritual refuge here gives credit. Majesty and humility join together.
