Did You Enjoy Film “Waking Ned Devine?” Did You Know It’s Not Filmed in Ireland?

If you go to BizTV.com and visit the archived Vide0-on-Demand (BVOD) for Travel TV WITH Stephanie Abrams, you’ll find, at this point, the first 13 episodes of my one-hour weekly travel show which debuted this year. While there are episodes about the wonderful islands that make up the country of Malta, episodes about travel by Amtrak, program content focused on Amazing Attractions in Massachusetts and New York as well as Dutchess County, New York and two episodes on Greece and cruising the Greek Islands and part of Turkey, you will find six (6) shows about Ireland. Were it not for the debut of Travel TV WITH Stephanie Abrams this past February, my “almost completed” first travel guide, “1001 Reasons to Visit Ireland” would be published and in the marketplace. Hopefully, that will happen sooner rather than later! But note that my designation as a travel expert is not a frivolous designation which is why, in watching the marvelous comedy, “Waking Ned Devine,” this  past weekend, after not having seen it since it first came to theaters years and years and years ago, it occurred to me that the scenery depicting  the village where the story takes place, which is supposed to be in County Galway, Ireland, looks like no place in Ireland I’ve every seen! And the more I watched the film, the more I was convinced that I was not looking  at anyplace in Ireland.

So, as I normally do anyway, I carefully read thru the credits at the end of the film to see where in Ireland they might indicate where this film was shot. . . and, lo and behold, I  was right! Waking Ned Devine was not filmed in Ireland at all! It was filmed on the Isle of Man! The irony is that  we have, twice in the last month, interviewed people about travel to the Isle of Man! Check out the show notes on the home page here at sAbrams.com to hear the archived audio and click on Podcasts at Travelers411.com to down load those interviews with the General Manager of the Regency Hotel on the Isle  of Man and traveler Chris Fitzgerald, a Stephanie Abrams Travel Fairy Godmother traveler, who returned from the Isle of Man a couple of weeks ago talking about his experience.

Such fun  to spot the inconsistencies in the fantasies brought to us on the big screen! And be sure to keep up your travel education watching my new TV show  and catching VOD at BizTV.com!
