Who here has seen Moby Dick the film? Did you know that the movie was filmed in Ireland? In 1954 the director John Huston chose the town of Youghal in Co. Cork as the filming location. As a result, there is now a pub there classically called „Mobi Dick“. The actors such as Gregory Peck, Richard Basehart and Leo Genn were fans of the local pub and enjoyed a few pints in the hideaway town. In the months when the film was directed many of the plans and happenings were hatched out at the Paddy Linehan's Pub (now known as Mobi Dick). The pub has been owned by the Linehan family for the better part of 200 years. If you go to the pub you will find that is haven’t changed much from its movie days. If you’re a movie lover and want to take in some scenes of the past then this place is a must visit.
