This Autumn take your own 5 star walk of fame at Dromoland in the footsteps of a galaxy of star performers both on and off stage.

Trace the steps of John, Paul, George and well maybe not Ringo but Jane, June, Demi and others.

From Jonny Cash to Paul Hewson (aka Bono) after a flight diversion to Shannon (U2 not Mr Cash). Aviation enthusiasts John Travolta and Richard Branson made their own flight arrangements.

From George Bush to Bill Clinton and Nelson Mandela.

And in years gone by the red carpet rolled out for June Carter Cash, Demi Moore, Faye Dunaway,  Jane Fonda (and hubby Ted), golden boy Robert Redford, debonair Cary Grant and our own Sharon Corr on her own wedding celebration. Not all on the same day of course.

On a lighter note, Enistymon played willing host to the high jinks of Father Ted which featured Dermot Morgan, Ardal O’Hanlon, Pauline McLynn and Frank Kelly while inland, Tuamgraney, also in Clare was the backdrop for The Country Girls based on Edna O’Brien’s novel and which starred Sam Neil, Niall Toibin, Anna Manahan.

The “Angela’s Ashes” film starring Emily Watson and Robert Carlyle provided backdrops for Frank Mc Court’s native city in nearby Limerick while distinctive Dromore Castle, also in Limerick was used in the 1988 Neil Jordan comedy, “High Spirits” starring Peter O’Toole, Daryl Hannah and Liam Neeson.

So dim the lights, grab the popcorn, settle back in your deluxe Queen Anne bed in 5 star luxurious gothic splendour at Dromoland and lights, camera, action…
