From a thrilling story of adventure, wisdom and companionship to a cultural phenomenon that has swept around the globe, the Star Wars saga continues to inspire new generations and capture the hearts and minds of millions. 

Now, having visited some of its most epic moments upon the Wild Atlantic Way during the filming of two of its most recent instalments, the Star Wars legacy is being celebrated in 2018 with the first-ever May the Fourth Festival. Hop in your X-Wing Fighter and let's fly. 

From the buzz in Ballyferriter, where the Ceann Sibéal headland became home to five extraplanetary beehive huts in 2016, to 'Porgmagee', home base for some of the cast and crew whilst shooting on the extraordinary Skelligs, this three-day celebration in the heart of Co Kerry on the Wild Atlantic Way will have something for every member of the Rebel Alliance. 

Voyage along the cosmic coastline; gaze deep into the night at galaxies far, far away; enjoy screenings of Star Wars: The Last Jedi against the backdrop of actual film locations; catch behind-the-scenes exhibitions; visit beehive huts; and enjoy great tours and tastings. There's fun to be had from one end of the universe to the other. Be sure to pop into the Skellig Experience Visitor Centre too, for a truly out of this world experience.

It all takes place Friday, May 4th - Sunday, May 6th, so clear your calendar, set your coordinates to the Wild Atlantic Way and get ready to explore the unrivalled charm of Kerry's villages, cultural attractions, lively pubs and gift shops on this wonderful weekend. And, of course, May the fourth be with you.
