The Last Jedi – Sybil Head

Image

On one of the most beautiful locations in the World (as written by National Geographic), on the west coast of Ireland, a historic scene was created for a ‘galaxy far far away’.

The crew for ‘The Last Jedi’ had used the Island of Skellig Michael for the scenes where Luke Skywalker is found by Rey. On this Island, beehive huts can be found. These are not the actual ones used for the film, instead on the mainland of Ireland, at Sybil Head, these amazing huts were recreated.

For the disappointing sequel to “The Force Awakens”, “The Last Jedi” – Luke Skywalker (played by Mark Hamill) refuses to train Rey (the wonderful Daisy Ridley) on the Islands of Skellig Michael.

Rey has a vision in a cave, these caves are in Ireland, but not on the Island itself. Instead they are on the mainland, at Brow Head. About 8 minutes from Brow Head lies Crookhaven where the crew went for food and drinks (O’Sullivans Bar claims to have been used as a place for cast and crew to have a rest).
