Welcome to Skellig Ring House (formerly Portmagee hostel) located in the small picturesque village of Portmagee, the gateway to Valentia Island and Skellig Rocks. Portmagee village and harbour was a haven for smugglers and pirates but today is well known for its brightly painted houses, traditional pubs and quality restaurants where fresh fish is served daily straight from the boats.

Located in the fishing village of Portmagee, the gateway to Valentia Island and Skellig Rocks. Opened in October 2005, Skellig Ring House, like it’s sister property – Skellig Lodge in Ballinskelligs, is a super example of today’s contemporary, yet traditionally styled modern hostel. With warm, spacious, fresh and bright bedrooms and facilities, you will be more than happy by the private and public areas available.

It is adjacent to many tourist attraction, namely:

  • Skellig Rocks
  • Skellig Experience
  • Valentia Island
  • Valentia Slate Quarry
  • Valentia Museum
  • Kerry Way Walking Routes

Please enjoy your virtual visit to Skellig Ring House, a super example of today’s contemporary, yet traditionally styled modern hostel, which we know, will bring you back to us again and again.

We look forward to welcoming you.
