Overlooking Ballinskelligs Bay, the Skellig Hostel is located in the heart of Ballinskelligs. Just off the Skellig Ring, “ A Secret Ring off the Ring of Kerry”, the Hostel is the ideal place to stay when exploring this most beautiful, hidden part of Ireland’s rugged south west coast.How to find us

From Kerry Airport – 1 hour drive to Caherciveen, which is the nearest town to the Hostel. 4km outside of Caherciveen on the Waterville Road or “Ring of Kerry”, take the 2nd right hand turn at sign post for Ballinskelligs Village.

Through Ballinskelligs, stay on the main road, “Skellig Ring”, past the junction for Ballinskelligs Beach and Pier. At the top of this stretch of road, is another small junction with a very sharp bend. Slow down and drive through the junction (up the hill) taking care of the traffic coming from the left. The Lodgel is the 4th building on the left with Skellig lodge on the sign at the gate.

From Tralee and Killarney, (train & bus), take the N70 to Killorglin, and then take the same directions as above.
