Brendan Vacations has launched a “Star Wars”-themed self-drive vacation through Ireland. On the 11-day The Isle Awakens itinerary, travelers will have the opportunity to delve into filming locations from the iconic franchise, including Skellig Michael, where the final scene of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” was filmed, and Malin Head, where familiar scenes from “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” can be seen. The itinerary also makes time for guests to explore the history and culture of the Emerald Isle, whether it’s touring the Aran Islands to see how age-old traditions co-exist with modern living, or visiting Westport in County Mayo for a walking tour where guests hear stories ranging from how the Ice Age shaped Ireland’s holiest mountain Croagh Patrick, to the more recent news of Westport being voted the best place to live on the island.
