Popular actor James Nesbitt (Monroe, Murphy’s Law, Cold Feet on TV; The Hobbit on film) is fronting an eight-part ITV1 series, starting Monday 18th March at 8pm.
In James Nesbitt’s Ireland the actor will explore his homeland and offer his own take on Irish life, its culture, history and people.
Scenic highlights of the series include Co Cork and Blarney Castle, the spectacular beaches of Co Kerry and the towering Cliffs of Moher in Co Clare. Along the way, Nesbitt encounters some entertaining Irish characters and introduces viewers to less well-known places of interest.
