‘Mad Men’ star Christina Hendricks is holidaying at one of Ireland’s most luxurious castles

James Fenton

As the rest of us settle into our desks after the Christmas break, Mad Men star Christina Hendricks has the right idea by taking a holiday in the west of Ireland.

The six-time Emmy-nominated star has been busy updating her Instagram with pictures of herself in full winter garb wandering the grounds of Ashford Castle in Co. Mayo.

The tweed-heavy snaps show the 44-year-old getting acquainted with some feathered and furry friends, including a couple of gigantic Irish Wolfhounds, while walking around the vast gardens.

Hendricks also found time for the age-old custom of Hollywood celebs sipping on a Guinness while visiting these shores…

Sure it’d be rude not to. Christina Hendricks is perhaps most famous for playing Joan Holloway in drama series Mad Men from 2007 until 2015. She has also appeared a number of times on the big screen, most recently lending her voice to talking doll Gabby Gabby in Toy Story 4.

With such a busy Hollywood career, who can blame Christina for taking a bit of time out enjoying the fresh air of the west?
