TRAVEL Destination

Marooned in the Atlantic Ocean off Ireland's windswept Iveragh Peninsular in County Kerry are the remote and uninhabited Skellig Islands. Steeped in mystery and little visited, the larger of the two craggy islets, Skellig Michael, is the location of the most beguiling and enigmatic sacred site in Europe—a medieval monastery that was once home to a handful of pious and ascetic early Irish Christians. In fact, Skellig is so isolated and unworldly that even Luke Skywalker retreated here to seek solace and reflection. Intrigued?
