Spectacular Skellig Islands off the Kerry coast. The monastic site on Skellig Micheal is reached by climbing over five hundred steps up a 1000 yr old stone stairway. Stone beehive huts where monks lived & prayed centuries ago cling to cliff edges. These isolated arch. remains show the dramatically spartan conditions in which this early Christian community lived. Enduring several Viking raids, the monks eventually left the island in the 13th century & it became a place of pilgrimage.

Skellig Michael - an island off the coast of Ireland, complete with monastic ruins and Puffins! I think you can only get there by fishing boat. A definite on the bucket list!

The Park Loop Road in Acadia National Park is road biking heaven: one-way with two lanes of smooth pavement through a national park.
