Is Kildare Island County a real place?

A brand new season of Outer Banks arrives on Netflix on February 23 and everyone is scrambling to prepare for the show’s return. To pass the time, we decided to find some questions that many fans of the teen series want answered and answer them below. A question about the main setting of Outer Banks is constantly circulating on the internet. People want to know if Kildare Island is a real place. As always, you can count on us to know the answer!

The first season takes place primarily on Kildare Island, which is said to be one of the islands that make up the outer shores of North Carolina. The island is divided into two sections: The Cut and Figure 8. The population of The Cut is poor/working class and home to the Pogues. On the other hand, Figure 8 is considered to be the ‘wealthy’ side of Kildare Island and is made up of the Kooks.

Seasons 2 and 3 also take place on Kildare Island, but the Pogues also venture into other locations, such as the Bahamas in Season 2 and Barbados in Season 3. But can Kildare Island actually be visited? Here’s what we know.

Outer Banks: Is Kildare Island County A Real Place?

No, you cannot visit Kildare Island County as it doesn’t actually exist. Of course, that means you can’t visit The Cut or FIGur 8 either. Kildare Island was invented by writers for the teen series. Actually, it’s a hybrid of an actual North Carolina county called “Dare County” and one of the cities in the county called “Kill Devil Hills”. Although you cannot visit Kildare, you can visit the North Carolina county and city in which it is based.
