A trip to Skelligs is not for everyone, if you are elderly, poor of footing, or nervous of heights then this may not be for you. Skelligs Rock is open and exposed and you will have to climb over 600 hundred steps (original rock steps) with no handrails to get to the monastery at the top. Good walking boots are advised, (it's not a place for high heels and handbags) along with some sensible clothing.
Remember while it can be sunny on shore it can get a little cooler on the boat on the way out and at the top of the rock so wrap up well or bring some additional clothing with you. Be sensible, be aware of your surroundings and enjoy the experience, it's one you won't forget and in my opinion it ranks as the highlight of any trip round the Ring of Kerry.
