Guidelines for filming in ecologically sensitive areas.

County Wicklow is renowned for its stunning scenery and landscape. Its diversity of the landscape and its close proximity to Dublin City make it a very popular film location. This landscape supports some wonderful habitats for flora and fauna, which are protected under national and international legislation.

The guidelines below are intended as a tool to help filmmakers make the most of our wonderful locations without harm to the environment.

They are a step by step guide to getting permission to film in ecologically sensitive areas such as the Wicklow Mountains National Park. Permission for filming outside these areas is generally very straightforward but will of course require permission from the landowner.

A PDF file of guidelines for filming in eco sensitive areas will be made available shortly.

Code of Best Practise

The County Wicklow Film Commission is currently working on a Code of Best Practise for filmmakers filming in County Wicklow. This will be a set of simple guidelines intended to ensure that the close working relationship that exists between the Irish and International film and television sector and the stakeholders that support its activities are safeguarded.

Once the Code is compiled and adopted by all the stakeholders, it will be published here in pdf format. Please call back or check the news section.
