Skellig Michael, monks' island off the coast of Ireland

Sign in to follow this  

Skellig Michael is a World Heritage site about 10 miles off the western coast of Ireland. The rocky island was home to Catholic monks from around 600-1200 A.D. The island is famous for its beehive-shaped stone huts, with stone steps leading down to water's edge. The day that I visited, the wind was so high and the waters so rough that our boat could not land, hence the sculptured waves breaking against the island.
