First Dates Ireland looking for applicants

The hit series First Dates Ireland is back!. 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 Neil Kenna, and waiters Alice and Pete, 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 18 to 80 plus. The unobtrusive cameras allow the daters to forget they are being filmed and start bonding… or not!

“We’re halfway through casting for Season 10 of the series and we have some really brilliant daters lined up. Now we’re looking to find them their perfect match.

We need GAA-mad men in their 30s. Bearded men in their 40s+. Arty, creative men from 60 upwards. We need confident ladies who love to dance in their 70s. And alternative, spiritual women in their 30s and 40s!!”
