Little Skellig, County Kerry, Ireland

    Newer Older

    Little Skellig is the smaller of the two Skellig Islands, situated some 14 kilometers off the coast of County Kerry, Ireland. Like its larger neighbour Skellig Michael, it is steep, rocky and uninhabited by humans. It rises to 134 metres above sea level, and is best known as the site of Ireland's largest gannet colony, with 22,500 pairs in 1993. The island is a nature reserve, closed to the public.
