All the filming locations in Netflix's Irish Wish

Explore Every Enchanting Filming Location Featured in Netflix’s ‘Irish Wish’

Netflix recently unveiled its newest romantic comedy, “Irish Wish,” featuring Lindsay Lohan. The story centers around Maddie, a book editor, who finds herself in a twist of fate when she wishes to marry her dream guy, Paul Kennedy. This wish, made on an ancient stone, unexpectedly turns her into the bride-to-be, just days before Paul is set to marry her best friend in Ireland. However, Maddie’s dream doesn’t unfold as she had hoped.

The movie is not only a hit for its romantic comedy storyline but also for its stunning filming locations. “Irish Wish” showcases some breathtaking sites, many of which you can visit.

One of the film’s notable locations is Killruddery House in County Wicklow, Ireland. This sprawling estate serves as the Kennedy family’s home in the movie. The mansion, dating back to the 1600s, is still owned and lived in by the Brabazon family, the same family since the 17th century. It’s a working farm, a visitor attraction, and a private estate. The film features its magnificent dining and library rooms, as well as the beautiful orangery.

Another key location in the film is Lough Tay. It’s here that Maddie makes her pivotal wish for true love. The area is also known as ‘Guinness Lake,’ named for its resemblance to the iconic Irish stout, thanks to a strip of white sand along its edge. Though the lake is privately owned by the Guinness family and not open to the public, its enchanting landscape can be viewed from nearby vantage points.

Powerscourt Estate in Wicklow also appears in the film, particularly in driving scenes. Originally a medieval castle, it was transformed into a grand 68-room mansion by 1741. The estate features ornamental lakes, formal gardens, and pathways. It even hosts a distillery where a book signing event takes place in the movie. While the mansion itself is private, visitors can enjoy the gardens, a gift shop, and a café.

The Cliffs of Moher, one of Ireland’s most visited and iconic locations, provide a dramatic backdrop for one of the film’s key moments. The cliffs offer breathtaking views over the Atlantic Ocean and the Aran Islands, drawing visitors from around the globe.

The film also takes us to Westport, Ireland, in County Mayo. This picturesque town, with its stone bridges, colorful cottages, and lively pubs, serves as the village in “Irish Wish.” Westport is rich in history, including connections to the 16th-century pirate queen, Grace O’Malley. Its scenic beauty and historical significance make it an ideal filming location.

“Irish Wish” is now available for streaming on Netflix, bringing these stunning Irish locations into the comfort of your home.
