“Farewell sultry and fickle skies,” she began.

Farewell plumes of smoke from chimneys

Farewell ranges emitting the earthy and welcoming smell of turf

Farewell chips and tweed and open smiles

Farewell “marked bags”, lamb cutlets and kerrygold

Farewell to the most perfect spuds in all the world. Flowery or waxy. I will miss you most of all.

The star had been sharing snippets of her Irish holiday on Instagram over the past few days.


The celeb couple have a holiday home in the small Gaeltacht village of Kilcar.


Mathew has strong links to the county as his own father’s family hail from there.


The couple were joined by their children, James (15) and twin girls Marion and Tabitha (9).

She shared a photo of the kids’ indoor activities and wrote: “Rainy day. So here we go again. X,SJ”

Sarah Jessica has long been a fan of Irish cuisine – from the potatoes to the kerrygold butter – and shared a video of her soda bread.

That’s all. X,SJ

Back in June, she shared a snap of a handmade mug from Arran Street East, and it seems she’s a big fan of the company as she shared a photo of a box full of goods from the shop.
