They filmed in Ardmore Film Studios, so I suppose they built a lot of sets. Irish locations were used too mainly for battle-fields, so the territory was not that recognizable. They were supposed to represent Northern England and Scotland, so they could not be too recognizable as Ireland. The end-product was very convincing, though. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Will it be a girl called Alexandra, or a boy called Wayne? No one outside Buckingham Palace knows but it has not stopped punters from around the world betting on Britain's royal baby.
Bookmakers say they expect that wagers on the arrival of Prince William and Catherine's first child will outstrip those for the couple's wedding in 2011, previously the biggest market for so-called novelty bets.
As Prince William's wife Catherine prepares to give birth to a new heir to the throne, she faces renewed comparisons with her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, whom she never met.
The former Kate Middleton only met her prince four years after Diana's untimely death, but William gave her his mother's sapphire ring on their engagement, saying "it was right to put the two together".
Despite the popularity of the young royals, Catherine, 31, has at times been compared unfavourably to the late princess, who seduced the public with her outspokenness and glamour.
Britain's royal baby will have surprising family tree
Even before the birth of the new British royal baby to Prince William and his wife Kate, genealogists are looking into its family tree, and are coming up with many surprises.
The baby's relations will stretch from a simple Parisian actress via the Dracula princes in Romania, to even an Islamic sultan from Seville in Spain, who descended from the Muslim Prophet Mohammed, experts say.
