Trips to land on the Skelligs Rock
The Skelligs rocks, which are located 12kms off the coast
of Kerry, Ireland, are of such an importance that they have
been made a World Heritage Site.
When you first see The Skelligs you wonder how or why anyone
would live on such a remote rock in the middle of The Atlantic
Ocean, when you visit and stand on the site of the monastery
and Experience the Skelligs then you begin to understand.
Rest and refresh your soul from the busy world and absorb "the
magic that takes you out far out of this time and this world."
George Bernard Shaw the famous Irish dramatist and winner
of the Noble prize for Literature in 1925 was so taken by his
visit to the Skelligs on 17th September 1910 that he wrote:
"But for the magic that takes you out far out of this
time and this world,
there is Skellig Michael ten miles off the Kerry coast, shooting straight up
seven hundred feet sheer out of the Atlantic.
Whoever has not stood in the grave-yard on the summit of that cliff among the
beehive dwellings and beehive oratory does not know Ireland through and through ".
The archaeology the amazing sea and wild life and the wide
open timeless scenery of Skellig is a must for any visitor
