Patrick ‘McDreamy’ Dempsey has gone full native while tucking in at Dublin’s most famous chipper - describing the experience as “bleeding deadly!!!”

The actor shared a picture of much-loved Dublin chip shop Burdock's with his six million followers on Instagram - and proved he’d picked up some local lingo with his fun verdict.

The star paid a visit to the Burdock’s most famous branch near Christ Church Cathedral in the city centre - and looks set to become this year's Matt Damon with numerous sightings around the capital.

The actor has been clearly making the most of his downtime when not filming his new movie Disenchanted with co-star Amy Adams. Filming got underway on location in the capital and the Co Wicklow village of Enniskerry last week. The Disney movie is one of the biggest to come to Ireland in recent years, and is a sequel to the studio’s 2007 smash, Enchanted.

The star, who earned the moniker McDreamy when he starred as a doctor on Grey’s Anatomy, appears to have been smitten with his time here. “I love being in Ireland and I’m having so much fun working on this film,” he wrote in one of several more Instagram posts in recent days.

Large sets, including what appears to be a town hall, have recently been constructed in the village, while a princess-style carriage has also been spotted.

Walt Disney Studios previously announced it was looking for dancers for an unspecified musical feature film which would shoot in Ireland. Recently, an Irish casting agency put out a call for paid background actors and extras for the film, shooting from May to August.

Amy Adams, James Marsden, Patrick Dempsey and Idina Menzel will all return to reprise their roles in the sequel, set ten years following the events in the original film. Maya Rudolph, Yvette Nicole Brown and Jayma Mays have also joined the big-name cast.
