The Skellig Islands (Na Scealaga in irish), once known as the Skellocks, are two small, steep, and rocky islands in County Kerry. The smaller island is Little Skellig whereas the Skellig Michael is the larger of the two islands, with a peak over 230 m above sea level. This island is famous for his thriving puffin (Fratercula arctica) and razorbill (Arca torda) populations and for an early Christian monastery that is a Unesco World Heritage Site.. One of the things that has most affected me is the big sense of conservation and belonging that the Irish people of County Kerry have for the Skellig islands. The only one island where you can dock is the Great Skellig and this docking allows only three boats per day with a maximum 12 people. Little Skellig is closed to the public because this island represents one of the most important breeding sites for the Gannet (Sula bassana) in the world, with almost 30000 pairs. Many Gannets visit this island, which from far away, looks like a snowy mountain on the Ocean. It was really difficult for me to explain this view... too difficult even through the photograph.
