Skellig Michael, you're looking well.

It has already been revealed that the cast and crew are already filming in Kerry but it seems that the entire world has fallen in love with a truly beautiful part of Ireland.
Here's what Daisy Ridley and JJ Abrams had to say about filming in Ireland along with some of the best tweets.

Typical Kerry. No sign of them for 95% of the campaign and then they show up to steal the show at the death #starwars
