Ireland offers a diverse and spectacular selection of cinematic locations.
This includes the well-known favourites such as Castles, Country Houses, Georgian & Victorian Streets, and a wealth of forests, mountains, beaches & lakes. But in addition to this Ireland can also offer a range of urban and rural locations – wastelands, abandoned quarries, disused factories, crumbling flats and streetscapes both modern & old.
Ireland also offers locations that can double as other countries. The Victorian and Georgian streets and houses frequently double for contemporary and period Britain or Northern Ireland.
But in addition to this, Films & TV series have shot New York, California, Post – War Rome, Medieval France, Arthurian Britain, Palaeolithic Spain, and even planets in faraway galaxies. It can require a little creative thinking, Art Department magic, and some CGI assistance, but the core elements on offer make it possible.
LGI are committed to working closely with Screen Ireland.
