FIRST DATES IRELAND
The hit Channel 4 series First Dates, has come to Ireland and RTÉ2. In First Dates, single people from across Ireland come to the First Dates restaurant where they have a real blind date.
Joining maître D' Mateo Saina, are barman Ethan Miles, waitress Alice Marr, and waiter Pete Ungless who help set the scene and give romance the best possible chance to flourish.
First Dates Ireland is filmed in Coda Eatery at The Gibson Hotel where every moment is captured by over 20 cameras in the first fixed-rig show of its kind to be made in Ireland.
The singletons who visit the restaurant range in age from 20 to 70 plus. The unobtrusive cameras allow the daters to forget they are being filmed and start bonding... or not!
The tables of the First Dates restaurant have now been filled by another batch of blind daters, and we're no longer accepting applications for the current series.
