The Ring of
Skellig - Skellig Rock
[Kerry - Ireland]
Skellig rocks, eight
miles off the west Kerry coast. This was once the
spartan retreat of a group of hardy monks, who sheltered, from all
that the elements had to test them
with, in the stone beehive-shaped cells at the summit of the Island
of Skellig Michael.These islands are steeped in atmosphere and history.
There has occasionally been talk of closing the island to sightseers
so, if you can, put this on your itinerary. It is worth it just for
the experience of the crossing.
