Dublin Murders Main Cast

Dublin Murders is making its way onto BBC One soon but where was the show filmed?

The BBC's penchant for creating fascinating drama series looks set to continue with their latest grizzly addition Dublin Murders.

In joining the likes of Line of Duty, Peaky Blinders, The Night Manager and Bodyguard, Dublin Murders is sure to be an intriguing watch but looks to take audiences down a darker path than most dramas would dare.

Viewers are in for a gripping, nail-biting treat when the psychological thriller hits screens on October 14th. 

The series, to no one's surprise, is set in the Irish city of Dublin, hence the name, but not all of the new BBC show was filmed there.

The series sees the detectives, Rob Reilly and Cassie Maddox, work to uncover the truth about the gruesome murders with plenty of dramatic twists and turns awaiting viewers.

Where is Dublin Murders filmed?

Unsurprisingly, a good chunk of Dublin Murders was filmed in Dublin.

However, that is not the only filming location used in the series.

As well as visiting locations across the Republic of Ireland, filming for the show also took place in Belfast and a number of other locations in Northern Ireland as well. 

While Dublin very much provides the base for the series, other locations such as Ards Hospital in Newtownards, Bangor and Newry in Northern Ireland also featured in the filming schedule. 

To see just how these filming locations were used, you'll have to wait until Dublin Murders makes its way onto our screens at 9pm on October 14th on BBC One.
