    Wild Atlantic Way

    Rising improbably from the Atlantic, one of the highlights of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way, Skellig Michael has attracted both admirers and those seeking solitude for centuries. It was on this jagged rock that 6th century monks carved hundreds of stone steps to the summit, where they established an isolated monastery.

    In a galaxy far,  far away…
    Star Wars: The Force Awakens sent the global box-office into hyperdrive. Since 1977, the record-breaking movie franchise has travelled through more than a few galaxies.

    For Episode VII the cast and crew jetted into a little town called Portmagee, County Kerry, on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way. While the hotly anticipated Episode VIII came back for more than just a taster of this incredible stretch of coastline.

    Peace Bridge:

    The Peace Bridge built in 2012 was conceived as a project to literally ‘bridge’ the gap between the two communities of the waterside (protestant) and the cityside (catholic).

    This S-shaped bridge has proven to be a great success and has been pivotal in bringing the two communities together.

    It stretches from Guildhall Square to Ebrington Square, where you can enjoy a great view of the city.
