In Northern Ireland we’re a tad celebrity obsessed.
Charlie Hunnam aka Jax Teller in Sons Of Anarchy is being continually spotted in around the city centre and in restaurants as filming begins for upcoming movie Lost City Of Z. As fans post selfies with the actor on social media, his moves are being (rather creepily) tracked.
As told in Sunday Life, Sex And The City Actress Sarah Jessica Parker took her family out for an Ulster fry at Doherty’s cafe in Inishowen causing one customer to almost choke on their sausage.

Fortunately, fellow fry-lovers were thoughtful and considerate. In spite of temptation, they didn’t interfere with the family breakfast by asking for selfies. Instead, they respectfully stared from a few metres away and subtly took photos.
But let’s face it, most of us aren’t lucky to be eating a fry and have two major celebrities walk in (we wish).
Here are five places to go celebrity stalking in Belfast…
Celebrities have to enter the country somehow and most of the time they will fly in.
Game Of Thrones stars are renowned for staying at the Fitzwilliam Hotel. The surrounding areas are key spots for spotting your favourite characters.
If you’re going to see a band play The Odyssey that does not count as a celebrity spotting (sorry). However, if you happen to bump into Gary Lightbody or Rory McIlroy at an Ulster Rugby game that’s another story.
4. Restaurants and Bars
Surprise surprise celebrities don’t like being confined to their hotel for the entirety of their stay. The Game Of Thrones cast love going for a drink at Laverys and a few have even been spotted in Wetherspoons.
5. Night Clubs
Remember the days when One Direction would go straight from their show at The Odyssey to Box? Big Brother’s Calum Best has been spotted at El Divino, another popular location for celebs.
Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Take That have all been seen browsing in Victoria Square, making it an ideal place to browse for celebrities.
