Boston native Mark Wahlberg was back on the Emerald Isle, drinking wine with an Irish music legend and playing golf on one of the finest courses in the country.
One of America’s top actors was spotted drinking in Ireland with a well-known star from Westlife, one of the most famous bands to hail from the Emerald Isle.
Mark Wahlberg, who starred in Ted, the deceased, and Shooterwas seen with Nicky Byrne after a golf trip to County Limerick.
Wahlberg is just one of many famous Hollywood stars who have visited Ireland recently, and he’s not the only one who’s been thrilled.
Return to homeland – go on social networks
Mark Wahlberg was seen golfing at the amazing Adare Mansion in Limerick. He described Ireland as his “home” in an Instagram post to his followers.
Wahlberg tries an Irish accent and makes a valiant effort. He changes from a southern accent to almost Belfast when he says “Adare Manor”. Wahlberg also pointed to a “two little guys and their Da” playing golf.
He described Adare Manor as “by far the greatest golf course in Europe” and “perhaps” in the world. I’m sure there are many on the emerald isle who would agree with the sole survivor star.
