Speaking to about filming in the Irish capital, actor Jason: "It's surprising because you think Dublin is a city but it's actually sort of a seaside resort in some respects.

"It's surrounded by beaches, so when it was extraordinary weather it was 10 degrees hotter than it normally is at that time of year and it was sort of tropical.

"You did feel like you were in a capital city by the seaside, which I think is a really well-kept secret."

He added: "I think most people think that you'd go and have a weekend as a cultural thing but actually when you spread out, there's the beautiful coastline, so we made the most of that in this."
