Derry Girls star Siobhán McSweeney showcases Northern Ireland’s beauty

Images of our breathtaking coastline and countryside are being beamed into homes with a new series – fronted by Derry Girls actress Siobhán McSweeney.

The first episode in this four-part series, called Exploring Northern Ireland with Siobhán McSweeney, was broadcast last week and followed Siobhán as she travelled around County Down on her electric bike – taking in the Saint Patrick’s Way through Downpatrick and Saul and visiting Castle Ward.

Viewers also seen her checking out some of Belfast’s best-known sights – including the Harland & Wolff cranes, Belfast City Hall, Queen’s University and the Lyric Theatre – and meeting up with artist Colin Davidson in his studio.

In the following three episodes viewers will see Siobhán explore Armagh city, the Mourne Mountains, the Giant’s Causeway, Seamus Heaney HomePlace, Rathlin Island, Derry’s city walls (including, of course, the iconic Derry Girls mural), as well as Fermanagh and the Sperrins.

Shane Clarke, Tourism Ireland’s Director of Corporate Services, Policy & Northern Ireland, said: “Tourism Ireland was delighted to support the production of this new four-part TV series, ‘Exploring Northern Ireland with Siobhán McSweeney’.

“With many people across GB set to watch the series on More4, it’s a great way to shine a spotlight on Northern Ireland – highlighting our spectacular scenery and the many things for our visitors to see and do here.

“It will remind GB viewers that Northern Ireland is the perfect destination for a short break or holiday.”

Tourism NI’s Chief Executive John McGrillen commented: “This four-part TV series with Siobhán McSweeney will play a significant role in promoting Northern Ireland as a must-see holiday destination to viewers.

“Northern Ireland has something to offer everyone, from our world-class visitor attractions to our stunning landscapes, top class accommodation and fantastic food and drink offerings.

“Viewers will have the opportunity to see what makes Northern Ireland such a compelling place to visit.”
