Ireland might as well be Hollywood at this point, as we’ve seen dozens of A-Listers make themselves at home on our shores in recent years.
And now it looks like Tom Cruise could possibly be swanning around Ireland.
According to Celeb Jets, Tom landed in Kerry earlier this week. Tom’s Challenger 300 took off near Shannon just before midday on Wednesday and landed outside Killarney, Co Kerry just after 12pm.
The Twitter account claims that the journey from Shannon to Kerry used approximately 194kg of jet fuel and cost about €420. And the flight was just 12 minutes!

Celebrities have been coming under fire for their usage of private jets which emit an eyewatering amount of pollution into the air.
Kylie Jenner was hit with flack for taking a three-minute flight in California, while figures emerged last week that it was Taylor Swift who used her private jet the most over the last year.
Sustainability marketing firm Yard found that her plane took 170 flights between 1 January and 29 July 2022, clocking up 15.9 days in the air with an average flight time of 80 minutes and 139.36 miles per flight.
The total flight emissions for 2022 were calculated at 8,293.54 tonnes – 1,184.8 times more than the average person’s total annual emissions.
It is not yet known whether Tom Cruise was onboard his jet, he was spotted paragliding in the Lake District in the UK over the weekend.
It’s believed he was filming a scene for Mission Impossible 8. So perhaps he decided to head over to our shores for a flying visit in between shoot days?
Tom is no stranger to Ireland! He previously spent time in Kerry while filming Far and Away in 1992. He also visited Ireland in 2003 when he received a Certificate of Irish Heritage from the then Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore.
