Galway played host to Hollywood legend Bill Murray on Tuesday, when the much loved film star was in town for a few rounds of golf on his latest project.
Murray was in town with his family as part of a working trip to Ireland along with New York Times best-selling author Tom Coyne.
They are filming a new golf series, The Links Life, a and the stunning Galway Bay Golf Resort was his destination to enjoy the best that Galway has to offer.
The course is regarded as one of the best in Ireland, and officially rated as the best Parkland in Connacht.
Galway Bay Golf Resort, now part of the Connacht Hospitality Group, will be expanding with the addition of a 4 star luxury hotel and spa resort at Galway bay later this year.
Murray is famous for his roles in Ghostbusters, Lost in Translation, Groundhog Day, and many other classics in a long and storied career.
This isn’t the first time his work has crossed over with golf, as one of his most enduring roles was in the legendary 1980 comedy Caddyshack.
Taking advantage of Bill Murray’s visit, the expanding team at the resort took the opportunity to name ‘The Murray Suite’ in honour of him and his family, something for guests to ask about in the years to come.
Murray was dined in style by the CHG in a leisurely lunch, taking in the staggering views of Galway Bay in the beautiful summer weather, before heading to the course.
Filming for The Links Life, which will air on YouTube and other major streaming platforms, is supported by Tourism Ireland and Fáilte Ireland.
