Interaction with guests
I will be available to greet and welcome all guests the majority of the time.

We can provide you with local knowledge on Skellig trips, walking trails and shops/pubs/restaurants. Portmagee village is only a short walk/cycle away (1 mile). The Bridge Bar/Moorings Restaurant and The Fisherman's Bar offer a variety of succulent meals including fresh fish and shellfish caught by the local fishermen. Feel free to walk down the pier in the evenings and experience the fishing boats and trawlers steam in to port.
