Where was ‘The Banshees Of Inisherin’ filmed in Ireland?
The Banshees of Inisherin is a 2022 dark tragicomedy film directed, written, and co-produced by Martin McDonagh. Set on a remote fictional island off the west coast of Ireland, the film stars Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson as two lifelong friends who find themselves at an impasse when one abruptly ends their relationship, with alarming consequences for both of them; Kerry Condon and Barry Keoghan also star.
The film received nine nominations at the 95th Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor (Farrell), Best Supporting Actor (Gleeson and Keoghan), Best Supporting Actress (Condon), and Best Original Screenplay.
If you’ve seen the film, you’ll have noticed the beautiful landscapes within – it really is one of the most stunning showcases of the Irish countryside. Although the island of Inisherin is fictional, the shooting of the movie took place in 2 very real locations in Ireland – The Aran Islands and Achill Island.
