This Epic Star Wars Island Exists in Real Life, and You Can Visit It

Skellig Michael is real, and it's not in a galaxy far, far away...

Skellig Michael

You don't have to travel to a galaxy far, far away to visit the original Jedi temple.

The dramatic, lush island is known as Skellig Michael, and is located 7 miles west of the Iveragh Peninsula in County Kerry, in the south west of Ireland.

Used as a prominent shooting location in in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the recent Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the spectacular island has a fascinating history in its own right.
