Hollywood star Anthony Mackie has revealed his love for Dublin - and Irish women.

Speaking to RTE TEN, he revealed he has holidayed in Dublin and would love to come back to shoot.

"I had so much fun. I went to a crewing [rowing] race! It was a lot of fun, man. I went to a rugby game, I took the bus. I was a local" he said.

He also pulled the obligatory pint of Guinness at the brewery and joked that it takes "15 minutes" to get a pint.

"They pour it, they let it settle - that's when they give you a cheaper beer, and you drink that until your Guinness is ready," he said.

Mackie (37), who has also starred in films including The Hurt Locker and Avengers: Age of Ultron, then praised the women of Ireland, "And the women are beautiful, I mean, stop you in your tracks!"

Mackie is back in Captain America: Civil War as superhero Sam Wilson/Falcon. The film opens in Ireland on April 29.
