If the weather’s in your favour, getting to Skellig Michael requires a shortish uneventful trip by boat. In my case, I set out from Bealtra harbour near Caherdaniel, along the Ring of Kerry. There is never a guarantee that you can land due to the swells about the landing stage, but if you do manage to make it to dry land and climb the uneven and dizzying 618 steps to the top, as you emerge in wonder among the cluster of beehive huts and remnants of the monk’s community, you are rewarded with a jaw-dropping vista across the broad Atlantic and the darting puffins that nest on the rocks below. No wonder Luke Skywalker felt so at home here. It really does feel like a galaxy far far away!
About the Prints
Súileir original prints are printed on premium stock acid-free Canson Lustre paper and mounted with Larson Juhl acid-free archival mount board. They are mounted with a bevelled mount and carefully framed with handcrafted solid wood bevelled frames. All our wooden frames use wood sourced from sustainable forests. Many of our prints are digitally signed and embossed with our signature seal.
To keep your print as safe as possible, we use high-quality clear perspex glazing on our shipped framed prints. On our click-and-collect prints, we use 2mm clear float glass. All our unframed prints are sent flat, with bevelled mount, backing board and print sleeve. All framed and unframed prints are wrapped in tissue paper with a branded card and carefully placed in cardboard boxes with our branded stamp and labels, making our prints an ideal gift.
