When Star Wars came to Ireland

Intrepid adventurers from a record-breaking movie franchise discovered a place so wild, so beautiful and so otherworldly that they immediately gave it a starring role in one of the biggest films the world had ever seen. Star Wars and the Wild Atlantic Way – a great cinematic double act was born.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens smashed box office records and introduced the world to the savage beauty of Skellig Michael, the legendary island off the coast of Kerry, where Rey finally tracked down the long-lost Luke Skywalker. Now, audiences will be transported back to Earth's Wild Atlantic Way in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Filmed in some of the most spectacular spots on this coastline, from the very tip of Donegal down to the rocky shorelines of Clare and Cork, the film continues the epic story of Rey, Luke and their battle against the Dark Side. Discover this cosmic coastline for yourself, celebrate your love of all things Star Wars at the May the Fourth Be With You Festival in Kerry, or just come behind the scenes with us as we go on location...
