Whilst they were visiting George also took the time to meet with some relatives he had never met before; “I met a bunch of relatives that I never knew I had, which was also fun! My experience there was so memorable and seeing family was so much fun.”
“Being able to feel your real roots is a really cool thing! My father had been there and visited the family before and so it was really fun for me.”
George Clooney isn’t the first Hollywood actor to declare his love for Ireland this year, as Matt Damon was stuck here for a number of weeks whilst lockdown happened in the middle of a film he was shooting.
It seems the two actors had spoken about this as George revealed; “I talked to Matt while he was there. He absolutely loved being there.”
“And with Matt, you never know, he could just buy a house there!”
