Star Wars in Ireland: Follow the force by campervan
Star Wars: The Force Awakens will not only break box-office records but it will also leave a lasting impression on a new generation of fans. Whether you are a fervent Star Wars fan or just a curious traveller, you can now jet into the Irish Galaxy of the epic blockbuster franchise and admire the stunning filming location of Skellig Michael, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Take advantage of the low cost flights to Dublin Airport and get into your own Millennium Falcon campervan to head westwards to County Kerry. Bunk Campers’ team of Jedi’s will pick you up from the airport and escort you to our depot, located minutes away from the airport. With 8 different models of 2-6 berth campervans for hire and prices from only £35 per day, Bunk Campers have a spacecraft to suit all kinds of pilots!
With your transport and accommodation in one, enjoy a drive through different galaxies to the impressive Wild Atlantic Way. On the Iveragh Peninsula, a fishing village called Portmagee would have remained anonymous from Imperial forces if it were not for one of the biggest movie-making phenomena in history.
Rising from the wildest waters of the Atlantic, Skellig Michael and its neighbour Little Skellig have featured in ancient legends and attracted solitary travellers, from Vikings to Christian monks. However, in 2014 a very special visitor arrived to the Skelligs in the form of Luke Skywalker, turning the island into the planet Ahch-To.
Park up your campervan for a few hours in Portmagee and take one of the boats to Skellig Michael to hike to the dramatic remains of the monastery, built at the very top of the summit. After the walk, why not come back to your camper, warm up with your camper heating and a hot shower, cook a tasty meal on board, dine with a view and relax as every Jedi Knight deserves?
The next day, don’t miss the chance to follow the light northwards along the Wild Atlantic Way. Your camper will provide total freedom and flexibility to find the other hidden gems on the route, but please remember: always stay away from the dark side of the Force.
