Ireland is one of the prettiest countries in the world yet it is amazing how little of it many of us have actually seen.

While tourists flock to these shores and enjoy our amazing scenery we tend to tell ourselves "ah sure, we'll go and see that some day".

To get everybody inspired, we thought we'd highlight the remarkable natural beauty of Skellig Michael.
