The Irish seacoast (facing an ocean) was apparently part of the program, suggesting a coastal location. The Star Trek Encyclopedia (vol. 1, p. 258) located the village on the northeastern coast of Ireland. This contradicts the description of the town as being near County Clare, which is in the west of Ireland. Signs in the town suggest that it is near to Killaloe, Tuamgraney and Inis Cealtra, but these are far inland, near to the lake Lough Derg.
