RTÉ Television and Independent Commissions

Welcome to RTÉ's commissioning website

RTÉ works in partnership with independent producers to create many of Ireland's favourite television programmes.

As programme-makers, we work together in one of the most competitive broadcasting environments in the world - nearly nine in ten Irish homes are multi-channel. We compete for viewers against some of the world's largest commercial broadcasters and the world's best-funded public service broadcaster.

Our schedules are built on original Irish content, and we need your ideas and production skill to produce the shows that our audiences want to watch. For more information please click here. More...

Title: First Dates Ireland

The most romantic restaurant in town throws open its doors once more as hit dating show First Dates Ireland returns to RTÉ2 on Thursday, January 19th.

Following the resounding success of last year's series, First Dates Ireland is set to be bigger and better with 12 episodes due to air this time round. Which means more cameras, more hopeful singletons and even more access to those intimate, funny, often excruciating blind date moments.

The new series sees the return of Maître D' extraordinaire Mateo Saina and his trusty colleagues: barman Ethan Miles and waitress Alice Marr - once again playing Cupid as daters meet face-to-face for the first time.

This year viewers can look forward to more fun and frolics from the First Dates restaurant including cousins double dating, more bathroom chats and it wouldn't be Ireland if we didn't have a couple of daters that didn't recognise each other from previous encounters.

Transmission: Thursdays @ 21.30 - RTÉ2

Genre: Lifestyle

Production Company: CoCo Television
