    • Re: Duke's Movie Locations- Ireland

      Wow...thanks for all the info....I would love to visit one day !!!!!

      Have been to Dublin a few times over the years, and the Guinness was lovely, and what I remember of the pub crawls ..... superb little pubs and always a HUGE welcome....fantastic !!!

      Truth to tell, I'm looking for images of the cottage, especially those clearly showing the door. At this rate, I may just end up watching the film again. This picture is very interesting, as it seems the bottom half of the door opens out, and the top half in.



      This one is awesome, except, again, the door is open:

    • Duke's Movie Locations- Ireland (The Quiet Man)


      As many of you may be aware from reading the Duke's Movie Locations - Ireland forum, the cottage used in The Quiet Man, White O'Morn, is in a terrible state of disrepair.

      There is a concerted, organized effort (spearheaded by our good friend Mike Ward in Ireland) to Save the Quiet Man Cottage. I'm sure many of you will be very interested in this project. He also has a group on Facebook of the same name, for those of you on FB.

      We want to encourage everyone to see what they can do to make this happen!

      Maureen O'Hara will be visiting Cong village at the end of this month, to launch what is hoped to become an annual event there.

      Danagher House


      Above is the Danagher house.
      It also survives and is located on the estate of Ashford Castle.
      Just the same except in the film there was no glass porch at the front door.



      As it is today............Photograph by Mike Ward

      This beautiful house is exactaly how it looks today as it did in the movie back in 1951
      Its located on the grounds of Ashford Castle , and is very well taken care of
      by the lovely MAY AND JOE MURPHY ,
      [ i hasten to add the house is not open to the public at any time and is strictly private ]
