    First decide where you want to depart from, then contact a company that runs boat trips from that port. Here are websites for several companies with lots of info about the trips, email them with specific questions.

    Hello and welcome to VT.

    You haven't mentioned where in Kerry you will be staying. There are sailings from various points of the county, obviously crossing times will vary depending on where you set out from

    Have a look at the following site, it is the most informative site I have found...
    http://iguide.travel/Skellig_Michael/Overview/Boat_Operators
    This will give you all the phone numbers and contacts you need.
    The season will have resumed by April, but you will still be best to phone in advance on the day. Sailings are dependant on the weather and sea conditions at the time.
    The cost is €45 approx.

    and even when the boats are scheduled it might be that everything is cancelled due to bad weather and rough sea or due to not having enough participants!
