If you’ve seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens, you will definitely recognize this view. The final scene of the movie was filmed on an island so beautiful I wondered if it was a real place. Were these dramatic views and steep stone pathways just CGI and movie magic?
I was thrilled to discover Skellig Michael is a real place — and you can go there. And it looks exactly like it does in the movie.

Skellig Michael is a tiny, remote island located 7 miles off the western coast of Ireland.
The first inhabitants of the island were Christian monks in the year 600. They lived on this rugged island in complete isolation from the mainland. The monks built the stone staircase leading to peak of the island where they lived in beehive-shaped huts.
