What’s that whispering on the wind in the west of Ireland? Oh, it’s only all the recent Oscar buzz from the USA and if twee 90’s Irish movies such as “Into the West” and “Far and Away” didn’t put the Wild Atlantic Way on the international cinematic map, the new film by Martin McDonagh certainly will! Featuring Ireland's favourite Hollywood dream team Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson “The Banshees of Inisherin” and its stunning scenery are a must-see while visiting Ireland.
Luckily for you, Westport is a mere hop, skip and a jump away from where the movie was located, on Achill Island. Achill is home not only to breathtaking scenery, a beautiful and tragic history, and some of the best summer memories you’ll ever make, but it now also boasts hotly-tipped Oscar filming locations. Move over Northern Ireland and Game of Thrones, the west is coming for your crown.
