Fantastic Kerry Landscape in Star Wars VIII

Kerry Landscape in Star Wars VIII

The fantastic landscape of Kerry features in the new Star Wars movie. Star Wars VIII – The Last Jedi opens with scenes shot on  and around Skellig Michael.
This is the second Star Wars which uses scenes from Skellig. It started with Star Wars – The Force Awakens which brought worldwide attention to the Iveragh Peninsula, especially Ballinskelligs, Portmagee and the Skellig Islands.
The area is likely to benefit from the knock on tourism boost but it also means that the authorities have to ensure that the precious heritage and eco system of Skellig is not damaged by the increased number of visitors.
