Dingle Peninsula Star Wars Tour – Ireland

Not too long ago, in a galaxy very close to ours, the Dingle Peninsula was visited by the team from Star Wars. Ireland, with its wide variety of dramatic scenery, made the perfect backdrop for scenes from Episodes VII and VIII of this epic blockbuster series.  

 

Our Star Wars Tour leads you through all the key locations the film crew used when filming the scenes, and get all the gossip about where Luke and Rey went for a drink and when Chewbacca went to the local schools.  

 

We will add in a few delightful places along the route, just so you get a true understanding of why the crew from Star Wars chose Dingle as their location. All of this in the company of a truly knowledgeable, local guide.
