Bunratty Castle Belfast THE TUDORS, DUBLIN & WICKLOW The period drama starring Jonathon Rhys Meyers featured a number of examples of Ireland’s outstanding castles and manors. Some of the most notable castles featured include Drimnagh Castle, Humewood Castle and Swords Castle – which has since been restored. Along with these fine constructions, the series also featured Killruddery House and the Luggala in Wicklow Valley plus Christchurch Cathedral, Kilmainham Gaol and The Phoenix Park in Dublin. SING STREET, DUBLIN This boy-meets-girl, boy-starts-band-to- impress-girl story has charmed movie goers on both sides of the Atlantic. Set in the 1980s, the film features shots of Coliemore Harbour in Dalkey, Dalkey Island and, the ever-romantic Dun Laoghaire harbour. Dedicated fans might even fancy a visit to the real Synge Street Secondary School where its design screams 1980s Ireland. THE CURED, DUBLIN & BELFAST Filmed in 2017 and due for release in 2018, The Cured stars Ellen Page in the aftermath of a zombie outbreak across Europe. The film features Belfast and Dublin as grim as they’ve ever been seen. Locations include Croke Park and Harold’s Cross, but the stand out setting and one highly recommended to any outdoor enthusiast is the beautiful Killiney Hill. Part of Killiney Hill Park, the hill looks over the villages of Dalkey and Killiney while also offering an almost birds eye view of Dublin Bay. THE YOUNG OFFENDERS, CORK One of the stand-out Irish comedies of the last 10 years sees two Corkonian teens cycling from Cork City to the county’s most westerly point in the search for riches. The movie takes in some of Corks finest landmarks and scenery. From the opening scene’s bicycle chase through English Market to the mystical Dun Lough Castle at Three Castle Head. The movie is a homage to what Cork and the Wild Atlantic Way has to offer.
