9 essential destinations to see the REAL Ireland
Where would you send Tom Cruise?

TOM CRUISE IS in town today, seeing a few sights. He’s been to the Gravity Bar and the Department of Foreign Affairs.

But where should he go to see the REAL Ireland? The Ireland we know and love?

We’ve got a few suggestions. Add yours in the comments…

1. The beach in the rain

Ideally while trying to have a picnic.

2. The snug

3. Squashed against a pole on public transport at 8.30am

With an armpit in your face. Fart smell optional.


4. Copper Face Jacks

Around 3am is best.

6. The ‘amusements’

You’ll definitely find amusement here. Oh yes.

Literally a palace of fun. (Michael Freeman/

7. In the studio audience on Winning Streak

Everyone knows SOMEONE who’s been on it.


8. The top deck of a Nitelink at 4.30am

All of human life is there.


9. Somewhere with a view when the sun finally comes out

Because when it’s good, there’s nowhere like it.
