Kate Winslet has revealed that her good friend Michael Fassbender turned tour guide recently after organising a trip for her to Kerry.

The Oscar-winning actress (40) paid a secret visit to the Kingdom with husband Ned Rocknroll, real name Abel Smith, whose uncle is Virgin mogul Richard Branson.

"Just recently, my husband and I, courtesy of the lovely Michael Fassbender, we did enjoy a weekend in Co Kerry and it was great, we had a great time," she said.

She also told RTE's Ten that they sampled a few pints of the black stuff as well.

"We drank a lot of Guinness, we ate a lot of bread that had treacle in it - some kind of amazing bread," she said.

"I even ended up taking a loaf of it home from where we were staying. It was so good and it had lots and lots of butter."

Winslett described Kerry as "gorgeous", and in good news for her Irish fans has added it to her list of places where she'd like to make a film one day.

"I love it. I've never worked there, though I would like to work in Ireland," she said.

Winslett is currently appearing with Fassbender in the Steve Jobs biopic, which sees the Kerryman playing the Apple founder.

And the pair clearly hit it off during filming.

It was recently revealed that Fassbender gave Winslett an unusual present of a pressure cooker for her 40th birthday last month.

She had said before how she wanted one so she could make "bone broths", a comment Fassbender followed up on as a joke.

One of Kerry's most famous exports, he was born in Germany to Josef and Adele Fassbender but they moved to Killarney when he was two.

They spent most of their time running the West End House restaurant, which was put on the market last month for €1.5m.
