Fáilte Ireland and RTÉ One television have teamed up for the second year running to show the nation that there’s ‘No Place Like Home’ when it comes to holidays.
Hosted by television presenter Kathryn Thomas, the travel series will air every Sunday at 6:30pm, starting from 22 August. Each 30-minute programme will showcase regions across Ireland, highlighting the incredible range of things to see and do.
This year, Kathryn will explore the Wild Atlantic Way, making her way from Donegal to West Cork. Meanwhile, special guests including Tolü Makay and Maïa Dunphy visit destinations such as Kilkenny, The Shannon and Dublin. Each episode will also feature special live segments from locations across the country.
Niall Tracey, Director of Marketing at Fáilte Ireland said: “The ‘No Place Like Home’ series proved extremely popular last year. It is fantastic to be collaborating with RTÉ once again to encourage people to take breaks at home this autumn.”
