Matt Damon has returned to the Irish town of Dalkey after spending coronavirus-induced lockdown in the town.
The star had been shooting his new movie The Last Duel in Dalkey when virus cases surged worldwide.
He went on to spend much of spring there, along with his wife Luciana Barroso and daughters Isabella, Gia and Stella.
The family ended up staying until the end of May, and Matt went on to describe it as being like a ‘fairytale.’
Clearly he’s fallen in love with the place – not only has he been spotted in the area once again, but Independent.ie is reporting that’s he’s moved into a mansion there.
Speaking on Spin 103.8’s Full Charged radio show in May, Matt said: ‘It was before lockdown. I’m in the middle of a movie, we shot the first half in France and were moving to Ireland.
‘Right when we arrived in Iceland, the movie was shut down.
‘That would have been early March I guess. Two months ago, I think.’
Asked how he was enjoying Ireland, he replied: ‘Oh, it’s incredible. This is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. Obviously what’s going on in the world is horrible, but for my family it timed out right.
‘It feels a little like a fairytale here, it’s gorgeous.’
Matt previously confirmed his eldest daughter had tested positive for coronavirus, telling Graham O’Toole and Nathan O’Reilly on Spin 103.8’s Fully Charged: ‘Our oldest daughter is in college, she’s in New York City.
‘She had Covid really early on, along with her roommates and got through it fine. But everybody’s ok. Obviously for Lucy’s mum and my mum, it’s scary for that generation.
‘I think we’ve all got the message now, everyone’s doing the isolation and social distancing and hand-washing and everything we can to mitigate this but it’s frightening, certainly for our parents.’
