Now, having visited some of its most epic moments upon the Wild Atlantic Way during the filming of two of its most recent instalments, the Star Wars legacy is being celebrated in 2019 with the annual May the Fourth Festival. Hop in your X-Wing Fighter and let's fly.

From the buzz in Ballyferriter, where the Ceann Sibéal headland became home to five extraplanetary beehive huts in 2016, to 'Porgmagee', home base for some of the cast and crew whilst shooting on the extraordinary Skelligs, this three-day celebration in the heart of Co Kerry on the Wild Atlantic Way will have something for every member of the Rebel Alliance.
