He added: “I want to go to that restaurant Johnny Foxes and have a nice warm Guinness.”

His co-star Matthew, who has Irish roots has often spoken about his love for Ireland and adds that he really wants to come back.

“Yeah I am going to come back. Right now I am going where my work takes me, thats really been our family vacations as well.

“I don’t remember the last time we took a vacation that was not work related. So hopefully a job will take me back there.”

He added: “I’ve got a lot of people that I haven’t seen there in a while, you know who you are.”

Matthew previously said he’d love to send his three children to the Gaeltacht to learn Irish.

“When they’re older, I want to send them to that Irish language summer camp you guys do,” he said.

“It’s like a rite of passage for you guys, isn’t it? When you’re teenagers. I want them fluent — which means I gotta do a crash course too.”
