Kerry always has been an Upside Down all of its own, to be fair.

The good people of Killarney were wowed last week as Stranger Things star Gaten Matarazzo was spotted pulling pints, nipping into Spar and belting out Sweet Home Alabama in a local pub to boot.

During a trip to Ireland the Netflix star popped into Killarney pub O'Donoghues, hit up a local Spar and posed for a quick pic beside the Dolmio sauces, and even joined in with a local pub singer.

O'Donoghues shared a photo of Matarazzo behind the bar with the caption "We've seen some strange things in @odonoghuekillarney but now we can officially say we have seen Stranger things!"

Meanwhile, Sheehys Spar in Dingle shared a photo of the star, writing "look who popped into us today". 


It has yet to be confirmed whether he got stuck on the Conor Pass while travelling through the Kingdom.

The actor, who plays Dustin on the hit show was also seen enjoying a sing-song in pub and café Reidys.

TikTok user Amy Griffin shared a video of Matarazzo belting out Sweet Home Alabama and applauding the pub singer who accompanied him.
