First Dates Westport: Mayo hotel lampoons hit show with cheesy promotional video

Ever want to get the First Dates experience without having your etiquette and personality critiqued by the nation?

If so, The Wyatt Hotel in Westport may have the solution for you. The popular hotel held their own version of the hit RTE show earlier this month and it went down a treat, with more than 250 people applying to take part.

From the number, only 20 dates could take place, with two people failing to show up. Of those dates, 12 said they would like to see each other again.

"We are thrilled to have hosted this one-off event. A positive and rewarding feeling has been left with all of our team and we do hope to roll out more single events in the future," a hotel spokesperson wrote online.

"When we launched this event, we did not expect to get anywhere near what we did on applications. We ended up with over 265 applicants. Ideally, we would have loved to have everyone at the event."

Meanwhile, First Dates Ireland are still looking for people to apply for their third season. If you think you've got what it takes, visit COCO Television's website here.
