Donegal being the coolest place on the planet seems to be attracting more stars here, as singer Sam Smith was spotted in the county this week.

The world famous music artist visited the Lemon Tree restaurant in Letterkenny to enjoy some top-quality local food on two occasions this week.

Sam Smith, whose hits include ‘Stay with Me’ and ‘Lay Me Down’ seemed to be so impressed by his meal at The Lemon Tree on Tuesday that he had to dine there again on Thursday.

Award-winning chef and local food champion Christopher Molloy welcomed Smith to the restaurant and snapped a photo with another staff member.

Posting the photo online, Christopher said that Sam loved the playlist, the food and said that Donegal was the coolest.
