Saint Patrick's Day, or the Feast of Saint Patrick , is a cultural and religious celebration held on 17 March, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick , the foremost patron saint of Ireland.
To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, today’s Google Doodle takes us to the mystical Skellig Michael, a remote island just off the coast of County Kerry, Ireland.
The breathtaking destination is a World Heritage Site and home to many species of seabirds — like puffins, gannets, and razorbills If you’re brave enough to scale the 600 steps to the top of the rocky precipice, you’ll see a magnificent view of the mainland and the Atlantic Ocean from 714 feet above sea level.
Each year at least four boat licences are granted to tour operators who run trips to Skellig Michael during the summer season. For safety reasons, because the steps are rocky, steep, and old, climbs are not permitted during very wet or windy weather
