An ariel view of Skellig Michael off the South West Coast of Ireland made famous by the recent Star Wars Trilogy.
The Skelligs

It's true to say that the Skellig Islands, 2 uninhabited, rocky islets off the southwestern coast of Ireland were made famous by featuring in the latest Star Wars trilogy but Skellig Michael is also known for its well-preserved early Christian monastery. The precarious, rocky site, includes stone beehive-shaped huts, oratories and crosses.

Tens of thousands of the unique puffin species breed on Skellig Michael during the warmer months. If you are a bird watching enthusiast you'll love the area with plenty of seabird breeds to spot, from Arctic terns and razorbills to the 70,000 gannets living on Little Skellig.
