As it’s awards season (Golden Globes, BAFTAs and Oscars to name but a few) it got us thinking about Ireland being used as a film location and indeed our properties in or near to some of the various areas.
Castletown House in Celbridge was featured in the 1980s TV series, Remington Steele with Pierce Brosnan in the title role. Round House at Castletown and Gate House at Castletown are located at the gates of the old Castletown estate.
County Waterford, home to Lismore Castle (quite close to our Salterbridge Cottage in Cappoquin) was used in the 2007 TV adaptation of Northanger Abbey.
Our Georgian Townhouse property on Eustace Street is located within Temple Bar, Dublin’s official cultural quarter. Temple Bar was transformed into Victorian London recently for a new series called Penny Dreadful starring Josh Harnett.
County Kilkenny, where our Clomantagh Castle lives, is particularly well known for the beautiful village of Inistioge where much of the film adaptation of the late Maeve Binchy’s book Circle of Friends was made.
County Clare has a stunning coastline. Loop Head Lightkeeper’s House is the furthest western spot in the county and located not far from the world famous Cliffs of Moher. The Princess Bride (1987) and Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince (2009) both feature the Cliffs in the films.
