16 wonderful Instagrams from Skellig Michael in Kerry

Worthy of any major Hollywood franchise tbh.

SO IT LOOKS like Co Kerry is set to make a killing off its new found Star Wars association – and it’s all thanks to Skellig Michael.

1. Sure the place is only gorgeous

2. No matter what you get up to on it, the scenery will look epic

4. You can see why Star Wars chose it in fairness

10. And some of the best views of Skellig are when you’re not even on it
