What’s your favourite thing about Ire­land?

The peo­ple, the scenery, the mu­sic, the wit and chat. The in­tel­li­gence, the love of mu­sic and her­itage… ev­ery­thing.

Your favourite Ir­ish town? Dublin.

Best view in Ire­land? Conor Pass, Kerry.

Your favourite restau­rant? The great restau­rant in Bro­gan’s Ho­tel in Trim, owned by Don Baker.

Best bar in Ire­land? O’Donoghue’s on Bag­got Street, for nos­tal­gia and mu­sic. Good pint too.

Favourite week­end re­treat?

Any­where in the west of Ire­land.

Where do you shop for clothes?

I like brows­ing, and I’ll of­ten have a look around a town cen­tre when I’m on tour.

Where do you pick up in­gre­di­ents for cook­ing?

Lo­cal shops, and the Dublin CoCo mar­ket at the week­end.

Favourite Ir­ish build­ing?

St Can­ice’s Cathe­dral, Kilkenny. I have played it a cou­ple of times – it’s quite breath­tak­ing, with won­der­ful acous­tics.

What do you rec­om­mend to­tourists?

Soak up the cul­ture, chat to peo­ple and lis­ten to the mu­sic.
