In the Skellig Experience Visitor Centre you can experience many aspects of those offshore Skellig Islands while remaining on the dry land, in a custom built, stone clad, building located right beside the Valentia Island bridge on Valentia, County Kerry!

- Here, through re-creations you can study the works and lives of the Skellig monks of the early Christian period and their dedication in gaining a foothold on a tiny, inhospitable, offshore island and creating a community there that survived for some 600 years.

- The Skellig Experience also has an 80-seat theatre, which through a 13-minute film presentation you can follow the footsteps of those Skellig monks, and wonder at the legacy of architecture that they left behind.

- The Skellig Experience also has a Restaurant and Gift Shop.
