Rocky and remote, Skellig Michael has long been a bastion for those seeking solitude, from 6th-century monks to Luke Skywalker.
Skellig Michael is a craggy island with steep sea cliffs sitting alone in the Atlantic Ocean. Explore the island, made famous in recent Star Wars films, with a private guide.
Feel the ocean spray and listen to the cries of petrels, kittiwakes, and other seabirds. Watch colorful puffins feed their fluffy chicks. Visit the somber cells, oratories, graveyard, and collapsed church, relics from monks’ occupation of the island.
If you have the mettle, venture onto the island’s exposed cliffside walkways, opened to a limited number of visitors each year.
