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.

This tour offers you the chance to visit these locations with your very own Private Driver in a Luxury Vehicle. Take your time at each location, capture the best pictures, and avoid the maddening crowds, as our drivers know all the best spots! We will arrange a traditional pony trap tour of the Aran Islands for you and your group, where you can view the stunning filming locations from the back of the most traditional mode of Irish transport.

The tour also captures the beauty of the Cliffs of Moher, as well as the vibrant city of Galway, known as the City of Tribes – in reference to the fourteen tribes of Galway or the fourteen merchant families who once dominated Galway between the mid-13th and late 19th centuries. Find out if your ancestors are one of these famous tribes, with a bespoke genealogy experience, and trace your roots back to the exact place in Ireland from where your family originated.

The whole experience was absolutely incredible – Jan 2023

We were a family of nine traveling together. This was a beast of a trip to plan & execute, and we could not have done without Alma and her crew.
The whole experience - our initial phone call, building the itineraries, bookings (lodging and restaurants), our drivers, making changes on the fly, and even the last drop-off at DUB - was absolutely incredible.
I highly recommend Alma and Ireland Chauffeur Travel.

5 stars for Ireland Chauffeur Travel – Oct 2022

We traveled with Ireland Chauffeur Travel September 10-17, 2022. I had taken prior trips to Ireland with a private driver and a CIE bus tour. Both were terrific and I had a good idea of places that I wanted my husband and friends to see. I chose Ireland Chauffeur Travel because they seemed to be very flexible about rescheduling a future trip if we were unable to go this year due to Covid or other reasons. They use comfortable Mercedes SUV’s for touring.
I gave a list of places I wanted to visit, experiences I wanted to have, and dates of travel to my contact, Michelle Lee. She developed an itinerary and suggested additional activities to include in our trip. Michelle was terrific to work with, responded promptly and kindly to my emails as we developed our tour. The hotels we stayed at were all 4 star and were centrally located for walking to restaurants and attractions in the evening.
John Healy, our Driver/Guide, was a perfect match and related well to each of us. He was very professional, always prompt on our 10-6 daily tour, well traveled internationally, had good historical knowledge of all the places we visited and took us to many places that weren’t on our itinerary that we enjoyed immensely. Our friends and my husband sing praises for John and all the wonderful experiences we had on our tour.
5 stars for Ireland Chauffeur Travel, John Healy and Michelle Lee!

We had so much fun!!!! – Aug 2022

We just spent 12 days with Bob and could not have asked for a better experience. He has an awesome demeanor, and the patience of a Saint. We saw places we would have never known without him. If you ever met Bob in any other aspect in life, he would be your friend. His insight, historical knowledge, and recommendations made this one of the best trips of our life. Michelle Lee’s assistance with the pre-planning and itinerary couldn’t have been better. She listened to our requests and then fulfilled those needs along with nudges for other opportunities. The hotel choices were perfect. I can not recommend this team enough. We had so much fun!!!!
