Kerry's beauty spots will be broadcast into the homes of over 155 million following a visit from a US TV travel show last summer.

‘Ireland with Michael’ is set to showcase Kerry as a holiday destination which airs across the PBS network in the US and Canada this month.

Michael Londra, the Emmy® nominated, Irish singer-producer is originally from Wexford town and is now a resident of the US.

In each episode, he takes viewers on an intriguing journey to the popular and some of the lesser-known Irish destinations to learn about Irish history, meets local artisans, experience small-town pubs and food, and enjoys unique musical and cultural experiences. He combines glorious video footage of Ireland’s storied landscapes, destinations, exciting cultural experiences, and performances from Irish stars.

The episode will feature the Dingle Peninsula, where he meets some of the town's business owners such as The Little Cheese Shop offering local cheeses from farms all over the county and Murphy’s ice cream made with 100% locally sourced ingredients. Michael experiences the sea safari to investigate the marine life that surrounds the peninsula and a visit to Inch beach. It will also showcase world champion Irish dancer, David Geaney, owns a pub in town.

The crew also visit Dingle Whiskey to see how they make their “uisce beatha” putting Michael in the mood for a visit with Irish music legend Joanie Madden of the famed band Cherish the Ladies to discuss her recent NEA Heritage Award.

“We are delighted to release Season 2 of ‘Ireland with Michael’, the show has been such a huge hit in Season 1 with a viewership of 75% of all US households," Michael said.

"It is an honour to highlight our greatest asset. Be they singers, dancers, poets, artisans or storytellers, our creators share their Ireland, in every episode of the show. I'm so proud of the country and the people in it, it is a joy to be able to share that around the world. Pre-pandemic North America has been the fastest-growing vacation market for Irish tourism, accounting for 33% of foreign earnings. I am very glad to be able to support the Irish arts, tourism and hospitality sectors and I very much hope that the show assists the international tourism recovery for Ireland post-pandemic.”

Aer Lingus, Tourism Ireland and CIE Tours sponsor the ‘Ireland with Michael’ series. Upcoming for 2023 is a new ‘Ireland with Michael’ Season 3, which will be released in January 2023, and filming of these episodes will commence in March 2022. At present, the crew are scouting locations and ideas across the country, so if think that you or your town should be featured send your idea and contact details to info@irelandwithmichael.com.
