No wonder there were so many reports Kim Kardashian was bored on her Irish honeymoon.
The reality tv queen spent her first week as a newlywed with husband Kanye West in Cork, Limerick and Laois during their much talked about honeymoon here.
And the couple were plagued by reports during their stay and after their departure, that Kim was keen to leave early due to the face that she was 'bored'.
While they managed to keep many of the details of their romantic trip under wraps, In Touch Weekly has no published a report detailing their low-key requests during their stay here.
Emails alleging to be between the Irish tourist representative Siobhan Byrne Learat of Adams & Butler Luxury Travel and their LA travel agent Patricia L. Blanche request that the couple mainly wanted to watch television and enjoy each other's company.
“From what we’re hearing, it would appear they’re going to spend plenty of downtime at the Castle, and are looking forward to watching movies and just spending alone time together," she is said to have wrote.
"I know you’ve already brought in a large TV (get the biggest one you can) and they have requested a DVD collection be brought in,” the email is said to reads.
“Someone on your staff may have a collection we can cobble together for the weekend, but my other suggestion is to have your staff pick up a Roku streaming player. You can hook it up to the TV and WiFi and they can download movies on demand from Amazon, HBO, Netflix, etc., which may make it easier.
"Feel free to purchase what you need and establish any online account you need in order to facilitate that. Might want to pick up some playing cards too.”
The couple left Castle Oliver in Ardpatrick, Co Limerick several days earlier than expected for Ballyfin House in Co Laois.
They then flew to Prague to attend a wedding of West's close pal, before returning to their LA base.
Meanwhile, they may have kept things uncharacteristically low maintenance for their Irish trip, it appears they are back to their lavish best having spent an approximate €630k body double for their 13-month-old daughter North.
"Kim and Kanye hired the lookalike to shield North from the paparazzi," an insider told Grazia.
"There were auditions held in LA at a specialist agency.
"They also hired a body double nanny, who they hope will really throw the paps off the scent."
