Mark Hamill invites Star Wars fans to
“Escape the Dark Side along Earth’s Wild Atlantic Way”
New tourism film celebrates Ireland’s Star Wars connections
Dublin, 18 December 2017: Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way has been wowing audiences around the globe in screenings of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. To celebrate the film’s Irish connections, Tourism Ireland has just released an irreverent promotional film about holidays along the Wild Atlantic Way, featuring Mark Hamill – aka Luke Skywalker.
From the craggy summit of Skellig Michael, off the south-western shores to Ireland’s most northerly tip, Malin Head, key locations were handpicked by Star Wars location scouts to represent Ahch-To – the oceanic planet which became home to an exiled Luke Skywalker.
Filmed using the trademark Star Wars screen-wipe transitions and sound effects which Star Wars fans around the globe will recognise, Tourism Ireland’s new promotional film features a number of beautiful holiday destinations along Ireland’s western seaboard. At the end of the film, Mark Hamill addresses the camera: “Escape the dark side along Earth’s Wild Atlantic Way – it’s the perfect place to get away from it all.”
Here’s something awesome in the lead-up to both The Last Jedi and the holiday season! Check out this announcement from Topps Star Wars Authentics.
We are just one week away from the premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Topps is counting down!

At the time of writing this I am sipping a cup of coffee and reflecting on my return trip to Skellig Michael, my second trip in the space of three months. To say that the island itself is out of this world is most definitely an understatement. Located seven miles off the coast of Kerry and being a native of the area I often threatened to make the trip out to the historic site, but there was always some reason or another that prevented me doing so (mainly procrastination).
Naturally when it came time to view Skellig Michael on theatre screens as Ahch-To in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi my procrastination took a back seat to my enthusiasm and I arranged a trip out in May with several of my friends and then when my fiancée informed me that she would like to visit the island I was more than happy to oblige and arrange a second trip in August!
