County Meath and Trim Castle to feature on US broadcast

American travel journalist Peter Greenberg will showcase Co Meath and Ireland in a new travel programme called 'Hidden Ireland', which will air during prime time on PBS (Public Broadcasting Service) later this year to millions of people across the United States.

Tourism Ireland invited Greenberg to film at a range of locations around Ireland for the one-hour programme. As well as PBS, it will also air on a number of online streaming platforms and digital channels – including Amazon Prime, Apple TV and YouTube. Peter will share short ‘teaser’ videos in the run-up to the broadcast on his own platform and with his 380,000 followers on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and YouTube.

Peter and his film crew have been shooting lots of content at Trim Castle. Filming is supported by Fáilte Ireland.

Alison Metcalfe, Tourism Ireland’s Head of North America, said: “Tourism Ireland was delighted to invite respected American travel journalist Peter Greenberg to come and film his new travel programme, ‘Hidden Ireland’. The programme will be seen by millions of people across the United States and is a wonderful opportunity to shine a spotlight on some of the many things to see and do in Ireland. Peter’s radio show, ‘Eye on Travel’, is also another great way to highlight Ireland to listeners across the US."
