Tour Code: 8983P21
Duration: 9 hours
Spend a day on a guided Star Wars experience that will take you off the beaten track. Unearth the real Ring of Kerry and explore the spectacular setting of Valentia Island. Also visit the Skellig Experience Center.
Meet for this 9-hour tour at the Discover Ireland Centre on Beech Road in Killarney a little before 9a.m.
When your tour starts, you'll be taken off the beaten track to explore the spectacular scenery of the Ring of Kerry and the wild Skellig Islands. Both these areas were used in the setting of Star Wars' The Force Awakens.
Arriving in Portmagee, which is the gateway to the Skellig Islands, go on an eco-boat tour that circles both islands. You will be right up close to Skellig Michael and Little Skellig, so you get to experience their unique magical setting and their incredible wildlife. Learn about the Monks that lived on the largest of the Skellig Islands from the 6th-12th centuries, and hear the story of how some of Hollywood’s biggest stars showed up in this tiny coastal setting.
Next on the agenda is Portmagee, where you can stop for a bite to eat (own expense). After, jump back onto the Ring of Kerry, slowly making your way to Killarney, stopping off at many spectacular viewing points to learn about how each location has shaped our history.
