Skellig Michael is an island off the coast of Ireland. Named after the biblical archangel Michael and the Gaelic word sceilig, meaning a splinter of stone, this UNESCO World Heritage Site contains an ancient monastery and graveyard.
Star Wars fans may recognize the island as Ahch-To, the place where the Jedi Order was founded and contains the site of the first Jedi Temple. It’s seen briefely as Luke Skywalker’s secluded hideaway in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) and again, full of porgs, in The Last Jedi (2017).
