From the lush green fields of County Kildare, adventure tourists depart Celtic Rider’s rental station seeking a thrilling vacation which viewers can now follow and enjoy themselves on the new docu-series ‘The Celtic Ride’. Season one was filmed around Ireland during the summer of 2019, shadowing five guys from Florida, four lady riders from New York and a couple who got engaged in Ireland in 2018, whose wedding was filmed on the highest sea-cliffs in Europe; the majestic Slieve League Cliffs.
Season one follows four fun-lovin’ guys who blasted from Kildare up towards the Inishowen Peninsula. Viewers will see typical Irish towns, including Trim which boasts the largest Cambro-Norman castle in Ireland. The peak of their tour certainly lies in Donegal, which was voted ‘Coolest Place on Earth 2018’ by National Geographic. A trip to Donegal is not complete without a visit to the stone ringfort Grianán of Aileach and the highest sand dunes in Europe; the golden Five Fingers Strand. The dunes have been in formation for almost 5,000 years and the drone shots follow our riders as they walk up the grass bank with the impressive strand behind them.

Episode two features four lady riders who departed Kildare and made their way to the medieval Kilkenny City where they enjoyed a visit to Kilkenny Castle which boasts the largest room in Ireland, but not before a trip to the final resting place of Arthur Guinness in a hidden 6th Century gem called Oughterard Cemetery which is located only 3 kilometres from Celtic Rider. They enjoyed a pint of the famous black stuff in one of the traditional Irish pubs in town called Delaney’s that evening. This pub is an infamous hurling pub with GAA memorabilia embellishing the walls within. From Kilkenny the ladies took a spin through ‘The Vee’ in Tipperary. A horticulturist’s dream as this valley is covered in lush Rhododendron’s and amongst thick forested fields where at 2,000 feet above sea level just about all of Tipperary, Kilkenny and Waterford can be seen. Continuing on in this scenic-filled episode is the colourful harbour town of Kinsale where the ladies go sailing on the Atlantic Ocean with Sovereign Sailings.
The first season finale was something to behold as Scott and Jane from Alabama tied the knot at the Slieve League Cliffs on a blustery but sunny day. Onlookers rejoiced with them as they stood on the viewing point overlooking the Kings Chair and said their vows whilst pouring green, white and orange sands into an Irish glass vase. Their tour brought us to the hauntingly beautiful Burrishoole Abbey in County Mayo, which is situated at the edge of a quiet tidal estuary where small fishing boats are dotted out on the water. Some fantastic drone footage shows us the mighty Benbulbin, mountain, a large flat-topped rock formation in County Sligo, Ireland. It is part of the Dartry Mountains, in an area sometimes called ‘Yeats Country’ where the resting place of Sligo’s famous poet WB Yeats lies at the foothills of the mountain.
Seeing Ireland through The Celtic Ride adventure-documentary is exciting, with each episode showcasing our beautiful country through fantastic ariel shots, on-the-road driving scenes and combined with interesting interviews of the characters where they share their own take of the locations they visit.
