This visitor attraction was developed by Cork Kerry Tourism in 1991-1992 to make the four treasures of the off shore Skellig Islands more easily understood by all. The exhibition building is a purpose built visitor centre opened in 1992, designed to be rugged in feeling and finishes, to reflect the experience which will be undertaken by visitors. The use of concrete vaults with grass topping is designed to echo the wild quality of the south west of Ireland and to blend in with the surrounding hills. The exhibition has four themes. The history and archaeology of Skellig Michaels Early Christian monastery. The Sea Birds, their habitat, their world wide travels. The Lighthouses which have given 161 years of service to mariners. The Underwater Skellig, which has colour and magic equal to any sea in the world. The Exhibition Centre has an 80 seat auditorium where a 14 minute film presentation * An Island On The Edge Of The World * takes visitors to the magical place Skellig Michael.
