Skellig: Experience the Extraordinary

by Des Lavelle

ISBN: 9781788490832

`Magic that takes you out, far out, of this time and this world.'

George Bernard Shaw, after a visit to Skellig

This is the story of two of the world's most stunning and unspoilt islands, Skellig Michael and Small Skellig, which lie off the coast of Kerry. Lavelle explores the extraordinary, isolated Early Christian monastic settlement with its stone `beehive' huts. He describes the abundant bird life, including the huge colony of gannets, and tells of the history, legend, geology, plant life, the lighthouse, the seals and the underwater world.

There has been a huge growth in interest in these spectacular islands, driven by Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way and the filming of Star Wars.

A comprehensive, accessible and beautiful book on a unique and fascinating place.
