Conor shared that the Parker-Broderick clan also enjoyed: "Cauli wings and salmon sashimi to share. I sent an extra plate of sashimi as they seemed to love the first one this gesture was met with amazed delight. They really appreciated it. Especially the kids."

Conor's special efforts didn't go to waste as he explained that the 57-year-old gave him a hug before heading back to her hotel with her family.

Whilst a lot of fans didn't notice the A-listers sitting next to them, others made a b-line to say hello to the actress and her family but according to Conor, "both Sarah and Matthew were happy to converse with anyone and everyone."


Sarah is a doting mother-of-three

Conor also explained: "My friend Lauren bought her a cocktail which SJP thanked her for personally as she paid at the counter."

Sarah appeared to be a huge fan of the restaurant and "had spent ages reading our reviews and chose us for their one meal before leaving Ireland as we 'seemed awesome'", Connor added.

The couple are no strangers to the area as their holiday home in Donegal has been in Matthew’s family for more than 40 years.

The pair, who are regularly seen by locals in the area, are often spotted in local restaurants and shops, and especially like the fact that local people respect their privacy.

The husband-and-wife duo are no strangers to an Irish break over the Christmas holidays and in 2019 turned up in a local shop for last-minute provisions on Christmas Eve.
