Is there anything like watching people find love to warm the cockles of your heart? Well this is what happened with the show First Dates and the people whom we have met through the show on our TV screens both here in Ireland and in the UK.
The reality show- essentially watching single strangers meet has taken the nation by storm. White Gables in Moycullen have decided it’s time for some romance and love this year and what better way to do that than with good food and new relationships. Just like the TV show that has taken the nation by storm, First Dates at White Gables will be all about bring strangers together for a first date. Throughout the course of the weekend, Friday 10th to Sunday 12th of February, vetted couples will be brought together at the restaurant to see if they are a fit.
Prospective dates will be asked to fill out a questionnaire so in house match maker Sandra Heaney can hopefully find the perfect match. Each couple will be booked into the restaurant over the weekend for their blind date. Owner of White Gables Anne Dunne will act as Maître and cupid herself Sandra Heaney will be there all weekend to do the post date interviews and hopefully see how many new couples are a match.
“We all love the show, so wanted to see if we could help bring people together this year. White Gables is a place that is synonymous with first dates in Galway, but we wanted to bring an element of fun and of course romance with the blind dating. I am really looking forward to matching people together and seeing if they are a fit in reality. We are hoping people take a chance and go for it on this- really there is nothing to lose,” explained Sandra Heaney of White Gables.
Dinner is €30pp; all candidates can apply though White Gables on Facebook, on the website www.whitegables.com or by phoning 091-555744.
