Love is in the air once again this Saturday night on Hallmark Channel as the network’s Spring Fling movie event continues with an incredible new film set against the picturesque backdrop of Ireland. We’re, of course, referring to the new Hallmark original As Luck Would Have It which arrives tonight on Hallmark Channel with an all-star ensemble and a story that is sure to captivate audiences.

In the original film, Lindsey (Joanne Garcia Swisher) makes her way to a small coastal town in Ireland with the mission of landing a valuable piece of land for her company who wants to use the land for a luxury hotel resort. Unfortunately, as Lindsey quickly finds out, the task isn’t as easy as she expected as the land just so happens to be home to a 14th-century castle run by the town’s council, who refuse to sell to anyone looking to erase its existence.

Luckily, Lindsey finds an alley in Brennan O’Brien (Allen Leech), a charming councilman and whiskey distiller who takes a liking to Lindsey and who Lindsey sets out to impress in hopes of swaying to her side.

In an attempt to win over the town — and Brennan — Lindsey signs up for the town’s annual matchmaking festival and is soon thrust into a whirlwind of adventures including baking, knitting, and an unforgettable trip to the Cliffs of Moher, one of Ireland’s most well-known destinations.

Soon, Lindsey begins to fall in love with the town and a certain charming councilman leaving her with some difficult decisions to make about her future and in need of more than a little luck in helping her pull off the impossible task of saving the castle, her career and holding on to her chance at love.
