The Hollywood actor is doing a tour of the greatest golf courses we have on the island for a new documentary series - luckily for him, there are no gophers in Ireland.

Bill Murray has paid a trip to Wicklow as part of his new web series 'The Links Life'. The golf documentary will see him visit some of Ireland's best golf courses for the show.

As you can see from the pictures below, his first stop on the Irish tour was visiting Druids Glen Resort near the Wicklow mountains. The 70-year-old posed for pictures on the course alongside some of his family.

The golf resort retweeted 'The Links Life' presenter Tom Coyne's tweet, saying: "Welcome to Druids Gen, delighted to have you."

The series is supported by Tourism Ireland and Fáilte Ireland and will see Bill embark on a whistlestop tour of many other golf courses around the country, including O’Meara course at Carton House in Kildare, Carne Golf Links in Mayo, and the Galway Bay Golf Resort.

The series is expected to premiere on YouTube and on other on demand platforms in the future.

'Ghostbusters' and 'Caddyshack' actor Bill Murray arriving in Wicklow is the newest in a long line of Hollywood celebrities who have been in the vicinity recently for production on movies and TV shows. Last week it was 'Black Widow' star Florence Pugh who announced her arrival in the countryside for shooting her Netflix thriller 'The Wonder'.

Elizabeth Banks is also beginning production on her new movie here; while the cast of Disney's 'Disenchanted' have also been touring about the place over the past few weeks.
