The StarWars Tour takes you to the StarWars hotspots in county Kerry! The rugged coastal scenery, crashing waves, impressive Skellig Islands and gloomy skies were the perfect location to film the next chapter of the StarWars saga.
The tour takes you around the famous Ring of Kerry, with focus on the StarWars hotspots that lie off the beaten path. You will travel along narrow mountain and coastal roads on the remote Valentia Island and the beautiful Skellig Ring. Admire the distant views of Skellig Michael, an impressive rocky island that lies 11km off the coast, where part of StarWars was filmed.
Get inspired in the village of Portmagee, where the cast and crew were stationed during the filming. It is from here that the boats and helicopters left to go filming on the island. This colorful fishing village hasn’t always been the centre of the galaxy, but it will surely be known now by many StarWars fans. Luke Skywalker (Hamill) even had time to pop into the Moorings Bar in Portmagee to spend time with the locals and learn to pull a pint.
You don’t have to travel to a galaxy far away to discover a landscape that is out of this world. Book your StarWars Tour now and enjoy the best of county Kerry, where The Force has awakened!
