Far too late i watched Star Wars VIII - The last Jedi last week with my daughter. Want to share some stills from Skellig Michael the Island where Rey found Luke Skywalker. I’ve Been there recently heading the Wild Atlantic Way through western Ireland. The image is the Location where Luke met Ray first and the guys down there make selfies with a Lightsword 😂 Enjoy ... #ireland#skelligmichael#starwars#thelastjedi#starwarsviii#lukeskywalker
The view of Other Skellig from Skellig Michael. Fun fact: if you turn your head to the right while taking this picture, it's a dead drop to ocean below. Not so fun fact: turns out I'm afraid of falling to my death.
“...the most fantastic and impossible rock in the world: Skellig Michael, or the Great Skellig...both the Skelligs are pinnacled, crocketed, spired, arched, caverned, minaretted; and these gothic extravagances are not curiosities of the islands: they are the islands: there is nothing else.” ~ George Bernard Shaw #drivethruhistory#shotoniphone#skelligmichael
Le isole Skellig sfidano le onde e le tempeste e regalano panorami incredibili!

Looking out towards Skellig Michael on a trip round the Ring of Kerry
In summer, the Skelligs are home to thousands of nesting puffins and other birds, and the monastic ruins were wonderful to explore (the talk provided by Clare on the history of the site was especially fascinating!). The weather was very kind to us today, what a once in a lifetime experience #SkelligMichael#LittleSkellig#WailingWoman
Today was the day I went to Skellig Michael, an island at the edge of the world (or the edge of Ireland). 🏔🌊 It’s now well-known for being a location for the new Star Wars films. The island was actually home to a reclusive monastery dating back to about 500 AD. It was incredibly beautiful, a once-in-a-lifetime experience. 😎 As we were cruising away from the island, I thought back to how often I wish I did more of the things I say I want to do, and I am so incredibly happy I went for it and hiked Skellig Michael.
3 years ago tonight, I walked into a packed @portmageethemoorings in Portmagee and found an enthusiastic young apprentice beginning his training. It is all too easy to be seduced by the Power of the Dark Stuff.
Cheers, guys, for an unforgettable night.
Skellig Island!!! The boat journey was something - really quite turbulent, I had to hold onto to back of the boat (and Stephen) to stay in my seat, and then half way out the boat broke down 😂 I think we all thought we’d get a break from the waves, not realising it would be even worse that we were now free to be tossed about by the waves. 6 out of the 10 of us ended up vomiting 🤢 The island was magnificent though - incredible to think monks lived on there. Next time we’d like to land and climb it! #skelligmichael#skellingisland#irishroadtrip#ireland
See those 2 islands between Luke Skywalker and Rey. Those are the Skellig Islands. They were used to film where Rey met Luke at the end of star wars force awakens and in the last jedi where Luke lived and trained Rey.
It was £40 each to go round the islands on a boat or £80 each to visit and walk around them. The £80 one was fully booked anyway, as expected, but I wouldn't pay that. I wouldn't pay the £40 one either, sod that, 2 and a half hours going up and down and up and down 🤢 on them choppy ass waters, being sea sick as balls, no thanks. The sky, cliffs and sea made it very pretty but it was windy enough here holding on to these 2 just for the pic and I've learnt before #ihavenosealegs
I was also still thinking about the weather I'd had the day before at carrauntoohil and although brighter today was still #sowindy
The area; the ring of kerry is a 111 mile tourist road that goes in a ring round the south west. We travelled a further 20 miles south from hostel on that to portmagee to go and see the skellig islands. Had a walk round the kerry cliffs before heading back north to get the flight home. Very pretty part of the world.
Während meine Herzensurlaubsbegleitung gerade den #skelligmichael erklimmt, den wir vorgestern während unserer Fahrt über den #ringofkerry und den #ringofskelligs schon aus verschiedenen Perspektiven gesehen haben, mache ich mir heute im kleinen Kenmare einen entspannten Tag. Etwas spazieren, Tee trinken und all die schönen Fotos anschauen, die wir bisher gemacht haben. Ich habe noch nie so viele tolle Bilder von einem Urlaub gehabt. Die Motive sind hier ja auch sehr dankbar 😄 Und ich freue mich riesig darüber, dass wir beide uns bewusst Zeit nehmen, um zu versuchen, diese Anblicke ansatzweise festzuhalten.
#herzensreise und unglaublich #dankbar
The view from the top of the Pilgrim’s path - you can see all the way to #skelligmichael
The trip this year has been wonderful. It’s been a balm for my soul to get to hang out with our Irish friends, in my favorite place in the world.
