Skellig Michael – Mysterious Monastery

 Skellig Michael is a steep rocky island in the Atlantic Ocean about 9 miles (14.5 kilometres) from the coast of County Kerry, Ireland.

After probably being founded in the 7th century, for 600 years the island was a centre of monastic life for Irish Christian monks.Access to the island is not easy. It involves a 50 minute sea journey and the climbing of 640 steps to the top of the island.
