The TV crew was here to record three separate episodes, capturing some of the unique experiences that their Swedish viewers can enjoy on holiday in Ireland. They’ve been visiting as guests of Tourism Ireland and Fáilte Ireland. Go’kväll is a daily lifestyle programme which airs on Sveriges Television (the national public broadcaster in Sweden) and each of the three episodes, set to air during autumn and winter 2018, will be seen by more than 1 million people.

 

During their time in the West of Ireland, the crew captured footage at the Burren Smokehouse, the Cliffs of Moher and at Cnoc Suain in Spiddal; they also travelled to Inis Mór to film at Dún Aonghasa. They met with Lisdoonvarna matchmaker Willie Daly, expert forager Oonagh O’Dwyer from Wild Kitchen in Lahinch and with music group The Whileaways, during a session at Campbell’s Tavern in Headford, Co Galway.

 

Aileen Hickey, Tourism Ireland’s Manager for the Nordic Region, said: “Tourism Ireland is delighted that Go’kväll chose to film in the West of Ireland. With an audience of more than 1 million viewers per episode, it’s a fantastic opportunity to showcase the Wild Atlantic Way. Television and film are recognised as strong influencers for prospective holidaymakers and Tourism Ireland regularly works with TV and production companies around the world, to facilitate the making of travel and lifestyle programmes and films around the island of Ireland.

 

“We have seen good growth in visitor numbers from the Nordic Region so far this year, with the most recent CSO figures for March to May showing an increase of +5.6% – an extra 3,500 Nordic visitors compared with the same three-month period last year.”
