EXCLUSIVE! Taylor Swift spent Christmas in Ireland with Joe Alwyn

The pair jetted to Ireland for a secret getaway

Taylor Swift jetted to Ireland for Christmas this year, with her British boyfriend Joe Alwyn. can exclusively reveal that the songstress rented out Glin Castle in Limerick for two weeks over Christmas, before leaving on St. Stephen’s Day.

A local source told us: “Before Taylor’s arrival, staff at Glin Castle had to sign a non disclosure agreement, to protect her identity during their stay.”

“She was also spotted at the local pub O’Shaughnessy’s, but it’s pretty old-fashioned so not many people there knew who she was.

“Taylor and Joe kept a low profile, but seemed to really enjoy themselves as they explored the Irish countryside,” they added.

Over the festive season, Joe hinted at their location by posting a photo while out on a walk in the countryside – and it looks very like the Knight’s Walk in Glin, a known trail in the area.

It’s believed Taylor fell in love with the area when she holidayed in Munster back in June, ahead of her two gigs in Croke Park.

Glin Castle has reportedly hosted a number of celebrities in the past.

In fact, English actor Dominic West is married to Catherine Fitzgerald – who is the daughter of the castle’s owner, Desmond John Villiers FitzGerald, otherwise known as the Knight of Glin.
