Duncannon (Irish: Dún Canann) is a unique coastal village on the Hook Peninsula on County Wexford’s south-west coast.
The village will make a good filming location for scenes that need a colorful and cheery seaside village. It also offers some uncommon coastal features that may be of vital use to filmmakers.
On a promontory on the eastern side of the village is Duncannon Fort. First built in the 16th century and used up until the mid-twentieth century, the fort has a lot of history and gets stunning views of the surrounding estuary. Among other buildings, the fort has a two storey lighthouse. On the south coast of the village is Duncannon Beach which is a lovely sandy beach.
The village also has a harbour on its eastern side. Commercial fishing vessels use the larger part of the harbour, while a smaller and older dock within the larger harbour holds smaller boats.
