I’ve been raring to visit Skellig Michael for quite some time now. Long before the Star Wars buzz came to be and the wonderful little island hit worldwide stardom with everyone and their auntie talking about it featuring in the last addition to the Star Wars franchise.

The fact is, however, that because I live in Dublin (on the east coast of Ireland), I’m a solid 4 hour and 37 minute drive (according to google) to Portage. Then there’s getting across to the island and all the rest.

There’s a good chunk of time needed to do it right.

Although I’ve made a plan to road trip along Ireland’s beautiful west coast over the summer, I’ve been wanderlusting about going on a tour of the island and checking out what it has to offer.

Until that happy time comes to be, the video below will have to tide me over.
