skellig-ring-irelandIn Lonely Planet’s ‘Best in Travel 2017’, Skellig Ring in Ireland has been named one of the top 10 regions of the world to visit in 2017. Lonely Planet has described Skellig Ring as “perhaps Ireland’s most charismatically wild and emerald stretch of coastline”. This UNESCO World Heritage Site featured in Star Wars: the Force Awakens, and is set to play an even bigger role in Episode VIII next year.

Shane Ross minister of tourism said that they are happy that the Skellig Ring has been acclaimed as a place of rugged and outstanding beauty and it should be on every traveler’s wish list. People have already started booking for 2017 for visiting this beautiful place.
