Stranger Things is one of Netflix’s most successful shows, catapulting its stars into the limelight. But one cast member has swapped the paranormal filled town of Hawkins for rural Ireland.

Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin Henderson, was spotted enjoy a getaway to Kerry.

The Kingdom has plenty of tourist spots on offer Killarney National Park, Skellig Michael, and Ireland’s largest mountain, Carrauntoohil. But Gaten decided to live like a local and visit a distinctly Irish cultural institution: heading to the local Spar.

Sheehy’s Spar in Dingle took to Instagram to share Gaten’s visit to their shop. Posting a snap of the star, in the shop’s aisles. Captioning it: “Look who popped in to us today… Gaten Matarazzo …Stranger Things”

As if his Spar trip wasn’t enough to winner our hearts, the 20-year-old also went on the most Irish night out ever!

While in Kerry, Gaten also headed to a local pub, for a drink and a karaoke session.

In a TikTok posted by Amy Griffin, Gaten takes a selfie with her in a pub. Before the clip changes to one of the actor taking part in a typical pub sing-song.

Standing with a local guitar player, the pair belted out Sweet Home Alabama.

What better way to end an Irish night out than finishing the night while dancing to Abba’s Gimme, Gimme, Gimme!

His most recent adventure also involved a trip to a Killarney pub. The actor head down to O’Donoghue Public House, where he enjoy a few drinks and even poured a few pints.

O’Donoghue shared a snap of the star behind the bar. Captioning their post: “We were thrilled to have [Gaten] pull a pint of @guinness with us here during his time in Killarney!”

“We’ve seen some strange things in @odonoghuekillarney but now we can officially say we have seen Stranger things!”
