Failte Ireland is hosting a trip to the iconic World Heritage site for writers from National Geographic and  several other publications to see where the force awakened for Luke Skywalker in the latest Star Wars film.
The writers are spending several days in Kerry, and their time in the county will also see them take a guided tour of the coast of Valentia island, and will culminate in a trip through Killarney National Park on a jaunting car to finish off their tour.

The event is being jointly hosted by Failte Ireland in collaboration with Tourism Ireland and it is hoped that the trip will lead to even greater exposure for not only Kerry, but the Wild Atlantic way initiative this summer.
