Speaking of the latest series, Michael said, “We are thrilled to release Season 2 of ‘Ireland with Michael’, the series was a huge hit in Season 1 with an audience of 75% of all US households.

It is an honor to highlight our greatest asset. Whether they are singers, dancers, poets, artisans or storytellers, our creators share their Ireland, in each episode of the show. I’m so proud of the country and its people, it’s a joy to be able to share this around the world.

Pre-pandemic North America has been the fastest growing holiday market for Irish tourism, accounting for 33% of overseas revenue, I am very pleased to be able to support Ireland’s arts, tourism and from the hospitality industry and I really hope the show helps the recovery of international tourism in Ireland after the pandemic. We would love to visit many new places and meet many new faces for the 2023 series, so we hope to hear from people across Ireland who have an interesting story to tell our US and Canadian viewers.
