For fans of Star Wars
The Skellig Islands on The Ring of Kerry have recently featured as part of the last two releases of Star Wars, The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.
While in Kerry why not avail of an opportunity to visit the dramatic scenery which formed the
background to and enhanced these blockbuster productions.
The Skellig Islands lie off the Iveragh Peninsula (Ring of Kerry) in south west Ireland. The islands have a long history. On one of these islands (Skellig Michael) a Monastery was established approx 1500 years ago. The remains of that monastery are still largely intact, and are now preserved and designated a UNESCO World
Heritage site, one of only three such designated sites on the island of Ireland. This island was one of the locations where both The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi were filmed.
Join Classic Ireland Guided Tours on a special Ring of Kerry private day tour with particular emphasis on these islands. As part of your tour we will stop at The Skellig Experience and you can opt to take a boat tour around these islands, or in limited circumstances disembark on Skellig Michael itself (early booking essential and subject to weather conditions).
For those fascinated by Ireland’s Christian Heritage or for true followers of Star Wars, this is a day never to forget!
On completing your Skellig Adventure, you tour will resume experiencing the dramatic scenery on The Ring of Kerry.

“Barry O Rourke is the best, he made our trip to Ireland the experience of a lifetime. We looked forward to everyday with him. He planned our trip perfectly. His knowlege of Irelands history is impressive as well as enlighting. He lets you see how Ireland really evolved to her present day. We saw amazing scenery, visited historical sites and memorials. We traveled to places off the beaten path that we would have never found on our own or with other tours. He was also quite helpfull with our own ancestrial research. He quided us to contacts and included visits to areas where records indicated our ancesters lived. Barry made sure our trip was everything we wanted and more. I would highly recommend Barry O’Rourke to anyone wishing to have the best vacation – Ever.”S. Driscoll
