Ballinskelligs, with its beautiful Blue Flag beach, sits on the western edge of stunning Ballinskelligs Bay on the scenic Skellig Ring road which connects us to our neighbouring village, The Glen, an area of outstanding natural beauty with the most magical views of The Skelligs.
Spirituality, history and legend entwine here in many ancient archaeological sites from the iconic McCarthy Tower to the UNESCO World Heritage Site Skellig Michael - one of the earliest and most well preserved, christian spiritual centres in Ireland and Ballinskelligs is a renowned Gaeltacht (Irish speaking area) with the beautiful 'blás' of the Munster dialect.
We are a small and friendly community and we look forward to sharing with you, the very best of Ballinskelligs and The Glen.

The new Ballinskelligs Calendar of Events 2014 will be launched on
Easter Sunday at Café Cois Trá at 1pm.
The 2014 calendar will again be bi-lingual as a lot of people have found this to be a great help in getting to know more Irish and we have had very positive feedback.
