HOLLYWOOD ACTOR John Travolta has landed in Co Clare on a “business trip”.

A regular visitor to the five star Dromoland Castle in Newmarket-on-Fergus, the star of Pulp Fiction, Saturday Night Fever and Grease is back in the Banner County.

Travolta flew into Shannon Airport on his own private jet. The sixty seven year old told his 3.7 million followers on Instagram that he had travelled from Florida to Co Clare “for business” in his Falcon 900. His attempt at an Irish accent in the video showcasing the flight has raised some eyebrows.

His role in 1995 film, Get Shorty won him a Golden Globe Award while he has twice been nominated for Academy Awards.

Down through the years, he has been a frequent flyer to Shannon Airport with many subsequent stays at Dromoland Castle speaking highly of the staff and the locality.

Prior to this week, John last stayed in Clare in 2019. On this occasion, Ennis hairdresser, Hassan Jiad received a booking from the five star hotel and the owner of Panache Hair Design was unaware whose hair he was cutting, “He looked familiar, but I couldn’t put it together. Finally, it clicked. Only one or two nights beforehand I was watching one of his movies”. Their encounter saw Hassan receive a subsequent booking to cut John’s hair in New York City.

Ennis politician, Cllr Mary Howard (FG) was among those to take to social media to wish welcome the Hollywood star to Co Clare.
