Skellig Michael & Cashel Town

Duration: 10 Days
DAY 10

8:30 AM - We checked out of our B&B and drove to Portmagee to catch our boat out to Skellig Michael. It's an old monastery built into a large craggy rock pretty far out into the ocean (a 50 minute boat ride) that survived three separate recorded raides from vikings and harsh living circumstances (no livestock, rough sea winds, etc.). We hiked 300 steps up to the settlement (also the filming location where Luke Skywalker was revealed in the most recent Star Wars movie). On our way back we went by the "Little Skellig", which is inhabited entirely by seabirds (and seals, as you can see in the last pic).

2:00 PM - After Skellig Michael we drove 3.5 hours to Cashel for our next overnight stay. We checked in to our B&B and went to grab dinner and explore the town. It was too late in the day to catch "The Rock of Cashel" so that'll be our first stop in the AM, but Cashel itself had several old buildings and landmarks on it's own, so there was plenty to see. After dinner we called it an early night. Long day of boat riding, climbing, and driving!
