Tourist trips to the Skelligs have been hampered by rough seas and a long winter.

The OPW had hoped to open island boat trips a month early but they have been unable to carry out the necessary maintenance repair works.

Visitor numbers to the Star Wars site increased by around two thousand last year from the previous year as people flocked to see where The Last Jedi was filmed.


A restricted number of boats are only allowed to land on the island for 5 months of the year.
