Which location in Ireland appears in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens?”
Skellig Michael Island
Looking to get away? Why not take a boat ride to Skellig Michael Island and standing on the same ground that Luke Skywalker and Rey did in ”Star Wars: The Force Awakens?” While the place may seem like a desolate chunk of rock sitting in the ocean, a sixth-century Christian monastery once called this place home. Today, tourists can walk up the island’s 600 steps for incredible views. Maybe you’ll even see the Millennium Falcon in the distance! Source: CNN, IrishCentral.
Skellig Michael, also called Great Skellig, is the larger of the two Skellig Islands, 11.6 kilometres west of the Iveragh Peninsula in County Kerry, Ireland.
