Tourism Ireland Promotes ‘Bodkin’ Irish Connections

The stunning scenery of West Cork, Wicklow and Dublin is wowing viewers of the recently released Netflix comedic thriller Bodkin.

To celebrate the fact that the series was filmed entirely on location in Ireland, Tourism Ireland has created a short behind-the-scenes film – in which creator, co-showrunner and executive producer Jez Scharf and actors Will Forte (Gilbert), Siobhán Cullen (Dove), Robyn Cara (Emmy) and David Wilmot (Seamus) describe and praise the special locations chosen for filming. Tourism Ireland aims to highlight Ireland’s scenery, reminding people that Bodkin was shot on location here.

Elmagh Killeen, Tourism Ireland’s Head of Brand & Marketing Communications, said: “We are delighted that Bodkin was filmed on location here – another fantastic screen tourism opportunity for Tourism Ireland and a really great way to showcase the destination. The series is bringing the magnificent scenery of West Cork, Wicklow and Dublin to the attention of viewers around the world. And, our behind-the-scenes film will remind our millions of followers on social media that the series was shot here, inspiring them to put Ireland on their holiday ‘wish list’.”

Siobhán Cullen (who plays Dove) added: “Union Hall makes the perfect Bodkin because it’s so stunning and it kind of encapsulates all of what people imagine about the beauty of Ireland – it’s all here, it’s such a stunning place.”

Filming for the seven-part series took place at various locations including Union Hall, Drumadoon Pier, Poulgorm Bridge and Glandore in West Cork; Belmont Demesne, Enniskerry Carnegie Library, Sally Gap and Travelahawk Beach in County Wicklow; and Fenian Street, Howth, Howth Castle and Leopardstown Racecourse in Dublin; as well as at Dave’s Diner in Julianstown in County Meath.
