Some 385,000 Americans will tune in to a series of five travel features all about Ireland later this year, on the popular TV show Out of Ireland, which airs on the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS – the public TV network) across the US.
Tourism Ireland is sponsoring the series of travel features and invited the crew from Out of Ireland to come and film our newest visitor experience, Ireland’s Ancient East, taking in counties Meath, Kildare, Wicklow and Wexford. Their itinerary was designed by Fáilte Ireland.
Out of Ireland is a weekly news, culture and entertainment programme, which airs on more than 30 member stations of the PBS network. It is aimed primarily at Irish-Americans or those with an affinity for Ireland. Filming is taking place this week at places like the Brú na Bóinne Visitor Centre, the Battle of the Boyne Visitor Centre, the Hill of Tara, Slane Castle, the National Stud, Newbridge Silverware Visitor Centre, Powerscourt Gardens and Glendalough. The show’s presenter, Patricia O’Reilly, also interviewed golfer Shane Lowry in the Millrace Hotel in Bunclody.
Alison Metcalfe, Tourism Ireland’s head of North America, said: “We are delighted that Out of Ireland agreed to film in Meath and Ireland, showcasing Ireland’s Ancient East and some of great experiences American holidaymakers can enjoy in this part of Ireland. Lifestyle programmes such as this are an excellent way for Tourism Ireland to get positive exposure for Ireland in the United States. The footage filmed here will be seen by about 385,000 viewers – or potential holidaymakers for Ireland – encouraging them to put Ireland on their vacation ‘wish-list’ for 2015.”
