PICS: Graham Norton shows off West Cork as #paradise

Graham Norton is on holidays, and where else would he escape to but Bantry, West Cork.

The Bandon native owns a holiday home on The Sheep’s Head peninsula and tries to spend as much escape time there as possible.

“#Paradise,” he captioned one of his latest insta pics.

“Like a thirsty pilgrim, I’m back #ireland #summer #happydays,” he then captioned this selfie, with some stunning views in the background.

He even captured the one day of Irish summer we’ve had this year.

Along with a drain pipe cozy and a few pics of his dog Bailey for good measure.
