KERRY welcomed the stars of BBC’s Top Gear, Matt Le Blanc and Chris Evans, over the weekend.
After visiting Killarney and Kenmare on Friday, April 15, the presenters headed to Dingle the following day, where they were greeted by hundreds of fans who had lined the grounds of the An Ghaeltacht GAA club.

With several Rolls Royces parked pitch side, Le Blanc and Evans addressed the crowds while a match between An Ghaeltacht and Dingle took place in the background.
After their stint in Kerry, Evans told reporters they had filmed in Ireland because of its stunning scenery.
“We had to come and film in Ireland,” he said. “We had the Rolls Royce Dawn and we had to have one of the most beautiful backdrops in the world.”

Friends star Le Blanc – who had stayed in Killarney the previous night – revealed that he’d had his very first pint of Guinness and had learned to pull a pint during his visit.
The pair have also filmed in London and Venice for the new series which airs in May.
