The Cork actress was spotted enjoying a few fancy cocktails in the Woollen Mills on Ormond Quay and The Exchequer Bar with pals last week.

She recently finished filming American crime drama Ransom on location in France and has now returned home to begin working on her next film project, Black 47.

In CBS show Ransom, Sarah takes on the role of private investigator Maxine Carlson. The show was created by Frank Spotnitz, who previously worked on The X-Files.

The first episode aired on New Year's Day, but it has been met with lukewarm reviews in the States. The New York Times described the storyline as "clickbait TV plotting", while The Hollywood Reporter said it was "not very memorable" and "mediocre".

However, viewers seemed more enthralled, and Sarah's performance was praised.

She last appeared on Irish TV screens in period drama Penny Dreadful and 1916 show Rebellion.

In 2015 she picked up the Best Actress IFTA for her role in Deirdre O'Kane's drama, Noble.

Sarah used to date Poldark star Aidan Turner, but they parted company in November 2015. The pair remain good friends, and Sarah has said she would like to work with him at some stage.
