Liam Neeson may no longer be based in Ireland, but you know what they say.

You can take the man out of Ireland but you can’t Ireland out of the man.

So when VIP Magazine got to catch up with Liam this week when he jetted into Ireland, we had to ask what he misses most about his native land.

Well, the food of course.

His creature comfort when landing in Ireland is a big bowl of champ, he tells us as we chat ahead of the premiere of his upcoming movie Marlowe.

A bowl of champ with gravy, a big dab of Kerrygold butter and a little bit of salt,” he tells us of his favourite meal.

And we have to agree.

He reminisces of his time working in Guinness back before he became one of the biggest names in Hollywood.

And while he no longer drinks, he also shared his number one place for a pint.

“I stopped drinking but it was always Mulligans on Poolbeg Street,“ he tells us with a smile.

He shrugs off the reason why he chose to give up drinking telling us: “Guinness I stopped because eventually you hit the 30 and it sticks to you.“
