Walk the path of Monks and jedi?

Walk in the footsteps of 6th century hermit monks and Star Wars Jedi on the UNESCO world heritage site, Skellig Michael. Featured as Luke Skywalker’s secret hideout in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, these towering sea crags rising from the Atlantic Ocean were the chosen destination for a small group of ascetic monks who, in their pursuit of greater union with God, withdrew from civilization to this remote and inaccessible place.

Only a limited number of visitors are allowed to climb the stone walkways to protect the unique archaeology of the island, where colorful puffins and other seabirds roam about.
