Visit The Star Wars Location Skellig Islands in Ireland.

in travel •  last year

The Star Wars movie saga was always a big hit in Ireland. No doubt the Skelligs where Luke Skywalker featured in  Episode VIII will feature high on the list of must see tours with  star wars fans from across the world in 2017. Problem is Skellig isn't the type of place you can just hop on a boat and jump on. The perilous seas and near death defying steps to the huts will put the wind up any would be explorer. If you're thinking of going and like me you're the acrophobic type be prepared. The view and presence of the place will probably blow all those fears away. Some pictures below show the majestic beauty of the place:Skellig Huts   Skellig Islands Cliff Side   Skellig Islands Co Kerry   Skellig Island sunset steps   Skellig Michael   Skellig Island Beehive Hut   Skellig Beehive Huts   Check out Irish Trad Group Connla playing the Star wars theme tune.

Thanks, lots more to come. I hope I can spread the beauty of Ireland worldwide through crypto. This is unreal.

Awesome photos! Love the Star Wars connection. Never would have guessed that scene was shot in Ireland — pretty cool! 😄

Ton of people taking pictures of themselves mimicking the Luke and Rey scene?

They're queueing at the very spot to do it yes! :D Even without the star wars connection it's a very impressive place. Well worth seeing.
