Great Skellig, Killarney Reviews

  • Also known as Great Skellig (Sceilig Mhichíl in Irish[5]), this is the larger of the two islands, with two peaks rising to over 230 m above sea level. With a sixth-century Christian monastery perched at 160 m above sea level on a ledge close to the top of the lower peak, Great Skellig is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

  • Yeah i just love this islands the porgs around here are so cute!

  • I have not been here. Did you know that this is where they filmed Ahch-To Island in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.

  • I had moved to a nice hut on this island, it was cozy and small, yet sufficient for my needs. I, personally, am a colored milk enthusiast. When I saw those gargantuan creatures with utters, I knew I had found my green milk supply. The neighbors are peaceful people, and the porgs and I got along well. I thought I would live the rest of my life here in isolation and peace, as I failed my expectations as a Jedi... Or so i thought. It was about 30 years after I moved here when a young girl came on my island with a lightsaber and handed it to me. This is where it began. I wanted no part of the force or the war. But, I felt that the force was strong with this one. Immensely strong. Even then, I still had doubts, this has been seen before, having this much power makes you vulnerable to the dark side. This one was strong though, so I gave her lessons on the force, until I saw her connecting with my nephew using the force. My nephew, Ben Solo, was too powerful and was lured in by the dark side. This girl, Rey, will not follow the same path. I stopped it by breaking down the perimeter of house she was in. She arose then forced me to tell the truth about Ben Solo, and I told her the real story. Ben Solo was the greatest student in my Jedi training temple, but I saw the dark side in him, and it was more powerful than I had ever seen. I was moments away from slaying him, but I couldn't bring myself to it. He then woke up and assumed I was going to murder him. He then used the force to destroy his house and cover me in the rubble. Then, he murdered almost all of the Jedi in my temple. He must've assumed I was dead, because I then arose from the immense debris after the fact. He was gone, soon-to-be-Jedi were dead. I believed I had failed my expectations. "The Legendary Luke Skywalker". I had failed. So I moved here, in isolation from everyone out there. But I knew if there was one hope, it was this girl. She left, in anger, with my old Wookie friend Chewbacca, who ate a large portion of the porgs inhabiting the island. In my melancholy and awareness of what was really happening, Master Yoda, in the form of a force ghost, visited me. He burned all of the Ancient Jedi Texts. He said they were useless, and that the force is still alive. I finally came to my senses and saw what was about to occur. The Resistance was taking shelter in an abandoned mineral planet mine. There were going to be destroyed by my nephew Kylo Ren (Ben Solo), and the forces of the Empire. I channeled all of the force that was left in me and became a hologram that appeared in the mine. I said no words, but gave my sister Leia the golden dice that her husband, Han Solo kept in his ship, The Millennium Falcon. They then opened the giant door for me. I stepped out, in front of thousands of guns. Kylo Ren ordered all of the weapons to be fired at me, and after the minutes of firing all of those weapons at me, I appeared out of the dust. It did no damage to me, as I was only an image relayed by the force. I brushed the dust off of my shoulder and Kylo Ren descended down to the ground. We were then facing one another once again. He came at me, but as quick as ever, I dodged his lightsaber. This went on for minutes. I then withdrew my lightsaber and said something along the lines of , "I don't want to fight you." He then said that I would try to bring him to his senses and away from the dark side, to be good. But, I knew that was impossible, for now at least. He ran at me, ready to chop me in half, and when I let his lightsaber pass through me, it did nothing. He was flabbergasted. He walked over to me and put his lightsaber through me. Kylo then realized I was only an image of the force. Finally I said "See ya later, kid." I had given the Resistance enough time to escape. I had finally lived up to my name, Luke Skywalker.

  • This island isn't that great. There are no roads so I can't drive around. I also got attacked by a mob of porgs.
