Skellig Michael, also called Great Skellig, is the larger of the two Skellig Islands, 11.6 kilometres west of the Iveragh Peninsula in County Kerry.
A Christian monastery was founded on the island 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.
Our new three day tour brings you around the Ring of Kerry and overnighting in beautiful Cahersiveen for two nights. The island gives magnificent views during the film including The Wailing Woman, Christ’s Saddle, and the monastery, as well as detailing the 100 stone steps built by monks on the hostile terrain.
