Tom Cruise is in Dublin!
He is staying in the Merrion Hotel which is only just around the corner from where I work. I won't lie to you I was tempted to take a trip around at lunchtime!
The Merrion Hotel is very popular with film stars and musicians when they come to Ireland - Bruce Springsteen stayed there when he played in Ireland during the summer. I'd recommend you click on to the hotel website - switch on your speakers, they seem to have attached music to the website so you can listen to lovely classical music while you browse!
As it happened I had to go Northside to run an errand during my lunchbreak today so I wouldn't actually have been able to go stalk the hotel afterall. I did however pass the Savoy cinema where Tom will be attending tonight for the premiere of Oblivion.
I passed at 1pm and there were people queuing along the red carpet already!
But no Tom Cruise :-(
I see that he spent 90 minutes greeting his Irish fans. Fair play to him! Article
He's a handsome man for 50 I tells ya :-)
