Portmagee village and harbour once was a haven for smugglers and pirates but today is well known for its brightly painted houses, traditional pubs and quality restaurants, where fresh fish is served daily straight from the boats.
Opened in October 2005, Skellig Ring House is a super example of today’s contemporary, yet traditionally styled modern budget accommodation. With warm, spacious, fresh and bright bedrooms and facilities, you will be more than happy by the private and public areas available. Our special atmosphere will have you relaxed in no time and feeling like you’re ‘Home from Home’.
Located on the Skellig Ring, ‘A Secret Ring off the Ring of Kerry’, Skellig Ring House is the ideal place to stay when exploring Valentia Island and the Skellig Rock – UNESCO World Heritage site , and this most beautiful area of Ireland’s rugged south west coast.
The famous Skellig Island Boat Trips are only 2 minutes walk from us. Other well known activities and amenities include the Kerry Way for walkers; magnificent scenery for all to fall in love with: great quiet cycling routes; diving and angling; horse riding; a wide variety of archaeological sites and Heritage Centers including the Skellig Experience; quality music, food & pubs; and best of all, our “World Famous Irish Hospitality”.
