A Force for good

Grand Prize

You could win a holiday for a family of four (or two adults) to the Wild Atlantic Way and Skellig Island in Ireland, staying at a 4-star bed and breakfast in Portmagee. You’ll recognise Skellig Island as the iconic location Luke Skywalker at the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

You’ll spend a day on a guided Star Wars experience exploring the iconic Star Wars: The Last Jedi filming locations on Skellig Island and the Ring of Kerry.

In Portmagee, you'll feel like you're in a galaxy far, far away with spectacular views of the night sky. There will also be an astronomer, with over 30-years' experience, on hand to guide you through a stargazing journey.

After your coastal adventure, you’ll visit Dublin where you’ll stay in a 4-star hotel for a night and create your very own Star Wars stuffed bear!

Finally, you’ll finish off your trip with a stop at the Disney Store, where we’ll give you €200 Euros for a Star Wars: The Last Jedi shopping spree!
