The OPW has confirmed that it is unlikely that Skellig Michael will be used as a location for further Hollywood style projects.

A spokesperson for the OPW said there are no plans for any major filming on the island and requests for photography and filming for educational purposes only may be granted subject to strict rules.

The world heritage site made even more famous due to the filming of Star Wars films there will be open to tourists on May 18th.

In the past two years more than 16,700 people have visited the island and its ancient monastic ruins.

The OPW confirmed 15 boatmen permits will be granted for the coming season.
