The Skelligs are renowned as a unique and special place, so when New York Times writer Lucinda Hahn visited the site, courtesy of local boatman Declan O’Driscoll, she could easily imagine “Luke Skywalker in one of the dank beehive cells, crouching as the monks had centuries before, marooned on the island with his demons.”
There were no demons over on the mainland in Portmagee, however. Outside of filming, according to local man Vincent O’Keeffe: “This is where most of the action took place. It would be fun for fans to see just how small the place is and how weird it must have been for us to have a movie as big as Star Wars ending up here.”
…The story continues in Episode VIII
The excitement along the Wild Atlantic Way didn’t stop once Luke Skywalker had been found on Skellig Michael. No, filming rolled on once again when Rian Johnson and the production crew, accompanied with a less secretive Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley returned once again to this incredible island.
Even better, LucasFilm loved this stretch of coastline so much, it decided to set the cameras rolling from Cork, Kerry and Clare and all the way up to Donegal!
