About Great Skellig, Killarney
Skellig Michael (Irish: Sceilig Mhichíl), also called Great Skellig (Irish: Sceilig Mhór), is the larger of the two Skellig Islands, 11.6 kilometres (7.2 mi) west of the Iveragh peninsula in County Kerry, Ireland. A Christian monastery was founded on the island at some point between the 6th and 8th century and remained continuously occupied until it was abandoned in the late 12th century. The remains of the monastery, and most of the island, became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996.Wikipedia

Probably the coolest place I've been to
Great trip to Skellig michael with Skellig Micheal cruises
It's very intresting
Accessed this island via Skipper Nealie Lyne's Mary Frances. Wind speed around 10mph and low visibility which forced us to really focus on the site (awesome!). Puffins, seagulls, and many other birdkind abounded: this is their home, and you are their guest. The monk-made dwellings, oratories, and stairways were incredible. Be sure you bring non-stop shoes, and anti-dizzying meds (like Bonine) if rolling seas aren't your thing. Some walking poles would've been nice coming up and down. An amazing site.
Didn't like it. Some hermit, who looked like he'd been living there for like 30 years, had built himself a house on the island. I went up to him to ask him about it but he just stared at me for 48 seconds...then the credits rolled.
