Skellig Islands & Ring of Kerry (Ireland)
Reel Duration: 14’05”
Skellig Islands once known as “the Skellocks,” are two small, steep, and rocky islands lying about 13 km west of Bolus Head on the Iveragh Peninsula in County Kerry, Ireland. The larger of the two is Skellig Michael (also known as Great Skellig) and, together with Little Skellig, they are at the center of a 364 hectares important bird area established by Bird Watch Ireland in 2000.
Skellig Michael is also famous for an early Christian monastery as seen as in this reel. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a continuing inspiration for artists, meditants and bird watchers.
