Normal People star Paul Mescal seems to be home in Ireland at the moment, having been spotted out and about down in West Cork. Presumably here on his holliers (given that he usually lives in London), the actor was the talk of the town after locals discovered that he was staying in Acton hotel in Kinsale. 

There alongside Keith Duffy and Bryan McFadden, it was Paul who really took centre stage. Also popping into a nearby café for a spot of breakfast, Paul was not alone apparently accompanied by American musician Phoebe Bridgers.

Twitter seems to think that the Lemon Leaf Café may have outed the two's new romance but it seems like an honest mistake to me though. I mean, who wouldn't want to shout about having Paul Mescal and Phoebe Bridgers in for brekkie? Completely understandable, lads.

Anyway, it's no secret that Bridgers is a fan of Mr Mescal's and people have been on high alert that there is something going on between the two ever since Phoebe professed her love for Normal People and said she "got a little pitter-patter" in her heart when she saw Paul had followed her on Instagram.

Phoebe later interviewed Paul for Wonderland magazine... an interview many likened to being on a first date. We'll let you make your own decisions on that - watch it below.
