TV3’s fun-filled and action-packed travel series, ‘The Holiday Show Ireland’ has been running for two weeks now and we are really excited as the show stops off in one of our favourite counties, Co. Cork, this week. On air on Friday, 18th January, 2013 at 8pm on TV3, presenters Ciara Whelan and Jon Slattery are up to their usual antics as they visit Cork as part of the show’s ultimate road trip around one of their favourite countries – Ireland!
The first pit-stop in Co. Cork is Youghal, where Jon takes a heritage trail walking tour with Sir Walter Raleigh, while Ciara goes angling for mackerel on Youghal Pier, all washed down with a visit to the Jameson Distillery in Midleton. Then it’s off to visit Spike Island, followed by a rare behind the scenes look at Fota Wildlife Park by head keeper Willie Duffy. In Kinsale, it’s time to ‘Dine Around’ town with the Good Food Circle, taking in the best places to eat and drink. No foodie tour of Co. Cork would be complete without a visit to the home of Ireland’s much-loved breakfast staple, Clonakility Black Pudding. And, not that they need any help, but Ciara and Jon also drop in on the Blarney Stone, the legendary Stone of Eloquence made famous by the thousands that kissed it in the hope of never being lost for words again! Then it’s off to forage seaweed on kayaks, visit Mizen Head, one of the most extreme points of the island of Ireland, take a cable car to Dursey Island and get wet and wild with Blackwater Outdoor Activities.
Make sure you switch onto TV3 this Friday at 8pm for The Holiday Show.
