The Steps of Skellig Michael, County Kerry Ireland

Skellig Michael is a stunning 6th century monastery built precariously on top of an island off the coast of county Kerry. Due to the boat trip it takes to travel there and the impossible staircase to the top, this place is truly otherworldly. The sightlines on the trip up and down make you feel like you are flying over the cold sea. If you ever have the chance to visit and you are capable of climbing 600+ steps, you should take the opportunity to experience this ancient wonder.
