The third episode of The Bachelorette, which was filmed in Ireland, aired in the US last night, boasting some serious drama against a stunning south west backdrop.

The reality show, which this season sees bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe looking for Mr Right among 25 suitors, was initially scheduled to film just two episodes in Ireland but ended up filming three.

Having already explored Dublin on the show, the cast headed to Kerry where Kaitlyn ended up kissing several guys as well as the Blarney Stone.

Her Dublin date with Nick Viall ended up with the pair getting 'intimate' with each other, something which came back to haunt Kaitlyn in last night's episode.

The episode kicked off with Shawn asking her if she's in love with him.  She said, "You can't put me on the spot like that," before adding, "I'm falling in love with you" and then they kissed.

Kaitlyn told the camera, "I am concerned that Shawn knows about what happened between me and Nick, and that I was intimate with him. I feel guilty."

Then she had to go on a two-on-one date with JJ and Joe.  As they took in some stunning Kerry scenery, Joe told her how he's falling in love with her while JJ revealed he had cheated on his ex-wife.  Kaitlyn then waved JJ goodbye and kissed Joe.

Next stop, the Paddywagon.  Most of the lads bundle themselves into the big green bus while Kaitlyn invites Jared to go for a drive and they end up kissing the Blarney Stone and then each other in her hotel room that evening.

Chris Strandburg is next up for a one-on-one as Kaitlyn invites him for a helicopter ride around the Cliffs of Moher.  They stop for a picnic and Kaitlyn cries and admits she's just not that into him so off he goes.

More than 6 million US viewers tuned in for the premiere of the ABC series and when syndication is taken into account up to 50 million people could watch the show.

The Randles Court Hotel in Killarney hosted the cast and crew of 100 during filming in April.  They visited Dublin, Clare, Cork, Galway and Kerry and filmed at Innisfallen, Ross Island, Muckross House and Gardens, Skellig Rock, Inch Strand, Tralee and Dingle.
