Manor House on Screen

Parknasilla Resort & Spa


While Star Wars was filming on the Skelligs, cameras were also rolling in other parts of Kerry too - including in Kenmare and Sneem where Dublin born Colin Farrell was Filming the Lobster. The A-lister was starring in the romance alongside one of the industry's top leading ladies, Rachel Weisz.  The film is about a world where people turn into an animal of there choice unless they fall in love.  Spending over four weeks in the area, the crew stayed in The Parknasilla where several scenes from the Yorgos Lanthimos directed movie were shot. 

Sing Street 

Irish Director John Carney delivers a musical tribute to his home city in the story about teenagers forming a band in Dublin in the 1980s. Dublin's City parks and avenues are captured beautifully in this movie which is filmed just around the corner from our very own Brooks Hotel.


Lough Inagh Lodge 

Lough Inagh Lodge House also has a claim to fame. Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson filmed Marley and Me in the front garden of the lodge. However, Lough Inagh doesn’t need any Hollywood connections, it's a must visit purely becuase of the unique and welcoming atmosphere that sorrounds this beautiful boutique house hotel.

Dunraven Arms

Dunraven Arms Hotel was once an old coach inn that served as an important stopping point for horse drawn carriages from Dublin to Kerry. Now a luxurious destination, this family run hotel still offers the old world charm of times gone by. It is a favourite of celebrities who visit the Limerick area and has hosted Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta Jones, Princess Anne, Princess Grace of Monaco, Tiger Woods, Hugh Grant, Gwyneth Paltrow and many others over the years. Located just 15 minutes from the ancient city of Limerick, a day trip to the city will allow you to visit King John's Castle and take a walking tour of the landmarks featured in 'Angela's Ashes', Frank McCourt's famous novel and Movie.
