Star Wars Ballyferriter Itinerary

In the small village of Ballyferriter, an epic event happened! In 2016 Lucas Film Ltd. arrived to start filming Episode VIII, The Last Jedi and continue the story of Luke and Rey on Ach-To. This headland called Ceann Sibeál was the perfect place to recreate the monastic settlement of Skellig Michael, featured at the end of Episode VII, The Force Awakens.

Dingle Peninsula 

“You must feel the Force around you, here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes”

Yoda Quote

Come and immerse yourself in our landscape..... and feel the Force

Home of stunning seascapes, islands and cliff backdrops, this part of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way, on the Dingle Peninsula, has been a place of pilgrimage for centuries – a place of quiet contemplation, a connection with nature and the elements, a sanctuary worthy of a Jedi.

This part of Ireland is called a Gaeltacht, a stronghold of the ancient Irish Language, with a localised dialect. Its unique beauty and sounds and its famed Blasket Island literature will make your quest to visit this mystical part of Ireland, more magical and rewarding.



Itinerary Ideas

We have created a three day itinerary for you to enjoy, to get the most from your Star Wars trail of the Dingle Peninsula, to truly experience the force of nature, and the landscape that inspired LucasFilm Ltd to base the planet of Ach-To on.
