Plans for a €150 million film, studio and media campus at Greystones, County Wicklow, were submitted this week to the county council.

Greystones Media Campus Ltd has applied for a 10-year planning permission for the campus, which would be built at the IDA Business and Technology Park, Killincarrig.

The application proposes 14 studios, offices and ancillary production buildings in a landscaped setting – more than doubling the stage capacity available to film, TV and media crews in Ireland.

A spokeswoman for Greystones Media Campus told The Irish Times that the “state of the art” facility would facilitate the growth of Ireland’s film and television industry.

“The proposed facility will seek to build upon, and contribute to, the existing Dublin-Wicklow film and screen cluster, the leading economic cluster of its type in the country,” she said. “It will also work to consolidate Wicklow’s position as the traditional heart of television and film production in Ireland.”
