[Irish Week] Real Places in Ireland from the Movie "Song of the Sea"

If you read yesterday's review or watched the movie, you'd probably had some deja vùs regarding some parts in "Song of the Sea"...long story short, the creators took inspirations from real Irish places for their stunning drawings! 

"You'll love the city Ben, I know you will!" - Granny said this to her nephew Ben, while on the road that will lead Ben and Saoirse to their new house...The city mentioned is non other than Ireland's capital, Dublin...and it's easly understadable when the kids runway to go back to their father, they pass through some famous city monuments, like:
 Molly Malone statue
St.Patrick Cathedral & Four Courts Dome

Have you ever thought about what it would be like living in an actual lighthouse island? 
Well, in Ireland there are planty of them, on the mainland and isles all around. Some of them are visitable and in others you can even sleep in as well!
Ballycotton island lighthouse

In the movie they're spirits and fairies turned into stones by an "evil" Owl witch Macha. In reality, anthropomorphic carved stone statues can be found in Caldragh graveyard on Boa Island.

That's it for today's post. I hope you liked it! 
Slán leat!
