Images of Wicklow and Ireland were beamed in to the homes of some 260,000 people across Canada on Tuesday evening when an episode of a reality TV programme, called 'Where to I Do?', aired on the CTV Life Channel.
The show follows a couple as they search for the perfect venue for the wedding of their dreams. Filming took place here last summer and was supported by Tourism Ireland and Fáilte Ireland.
In the 30-minute episode filmed in Ireland, Canadian viewers will see the couple, Josh and Andee, search for their dream wedding venue, together with the show's host Tommy Smythe - visiting beautiful venues, including Killruddery House and Gardens. The episode marks the first time ever that the programme showcases a destination outside of North America.
Last Monday, Tourism Ireland in Toronto hosted an online 'watch party' for some popular Canadian influencers - to help generate lots of exposure and 'hype' about Ireland in advance of the episode airing later today. The online party included a questions and answer session with the show's host Tommy Smythe, who chatted about his time filming in Ireland.
Dana Welch, Tourism Ireland's Manager Canada, said: 'Tourism Ireland was delighted that 'Where to I Do?' chose to film in Wicklow and Ireland last summer. This evening's episode - which will be seen by more than 260,000 Canadians - will showcase some of Ireland's most beautiful venues.'
