Irish tenor Michael Londra is back in Ireland, filming for season four of his television show Ireland with Michael. The new season of the TV series will air to millions of viewers across the United States on PBS (American TV network), shining a spotlight on Ireland's culture, music and history - through the eyes of its artists.
Season four, which will air early next year, follows the same format as previous seasons - with eight half-hour episodes filmed at numerous locations across Ireland. Filming is taking place at places like King John's Castle in Limerick, the Foynes Flying Boat & Maritime Museum, Adare Manor, the Wild Honey Inn in Lisdoonvarna, Shannon Airport, Spanish Point, Kilbeggan Distillery, Athlone Castle, Seán's Bar in Athlone, Graiguenamanagh, Altamont Gardens, the Game of Thrones Studio Tour, Ulster Folk Museum, the Causeway Coastal Route and the Old Bushmills Distillery, Ulster American Folk Park, and Hillsborough Castle and Gardens.
Alison Metcalfe, Tourism Ireland's head of North America, said, "Tourism Ireland is delighted to be associated with the Ireland with Michael TV series and we look forward to season four airing on the PBS network. Music is a fundamental part of contemporary Irish culture and an important aspect of a vacation to Ireland. PBS is available in over 100 million households across the United States, so this will be a wonderful opportunity to showcase Ireland, and our rich culture and authentic visitor experiences, to a huge audience in 2024 and encourage them to book their trip to Ireland."
Also in season four of Ireland with Michael, Londra will take viewers to some popular and some of Ireland's lesser-known locations - to learn about Ireland's history, meet local artisans, experience some of Ireland's pubs and local produce, and to enjoy musical and cultural experiences. He will travel from county to county, connecting with local musicians and artists, and immersing viewers in Ireland's heritage and culture.
