magic kingdom Greystones house gets Disney makeover as it's transformed into an “enchanted” pink paradise


Greystones is getting a Disney makeover as a house has been transformed into an “enchanted” pink paradise.

The home in the affluent Wicklow suburb boasts a turreted roof feature and has been completely refashioned for the Disney film Disenchanted, which is filming in Ireland over the summer months.

Located in the upmarket Burnaby area of Greystones, the property has been painted with pale pink hues and covered with a sea of flowers trailing down the walls.

The production team have reportedly spent the past few weeks transforming the house into a Disney wonderland and are ensuring that the locals are not being disrupted as the crew prepares to film.

The Disney team are reportedly paying for the homeowners and their adjacent neighbours to be accommodated in a luxury hotel when filming begins.

“Everyone is being put up for two nights as they were told it’s going to be very noisy so they’re all thrilled. It’s brought huge excitement to the area,” a local told independent.ie.

The Disenchanted crew are ditching Wicklow for a while however, as production has moved to Dundalk, Co. Louth this week.

Filming has commenced with Patrick Dempsey in Dundalk’s Clarke train station this morning.

It is understood that train services will be temporarily paused while the scenes are being filmed.

Sources say that the team behind the sequel to the hit 2007 film Enchanted are currently using Dundalk Institute of Technology as a production base, with areas of the college being sectioned off from the public.

The Disney film will be shooting in a number of Irish locations including Enniskerry, Greystones, and Dublin city over the summer months.

The town of Enniskerry, Co. Wicklow will be sealed off for 11 days in June so the cast can film at a huge set built especially for the film.

Indoor scenes will be filmed at the RDS in Dublin, which has seen builders create giant structures in preparation.
