The locations in Kerry paid a pivotal role in ‘The Lobster’. The landscape and natural beauty brought us to Kerry, and it was a joy to work there.

Shot in Kerry

In 2015 Skellig Michael became the island “Ahch-To” in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. JJ Abrams & his crew spent a number of weeks in the county filming on this remote island off the Kerry Coast. In 2017 Rian Johnson returned to this same spot to film “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”. In 2015 Yorgos Lanthimos & his team arrived in Parknasilla 5* Hotel on the Iveragh Peninsula in Kerry to film Colin Farrell’s attempts to find a mate in the absurdist dystopian black comedy “The Lobster”. “Far & Away”, “The Playboy of the Western World” & “Ryan’s Daughter” are more examples of films that have shot here successfully down through the years.

Kerry is known internationally for its scenic strengths, from the wild & rugged Atlantic Coast to its inland mountain ranges, lakes & forests. What is less well known is its long history & experience of working with Directors, Producers and Crew to ensure successful shoots.
