How to visit Skellig Michael in September
To visit the ancient monks’ dwellings, you’ll climb 618 ancient stone steps, and though the climb is steep, the views are worth it! Discover bird colonies and explore an other-worldly Star Wars (2015 & 2017 movies) filming location!
But when to visit? It’s a tough call. The Skellig Islands lay 11 km offshore and Irish weather is famously unpredictable. Visit Skellig Michael in September for fewer tourists and a quieter island.
