As might have been expected, Travis Kelce was one of the many celebrities who popped up at Taylor Swift’s three Dublin shows last weekend.

The Kansas City Chiefs star has been dating American music sensation Swift since last year and earned huge cheers from the Aviva Stadium crowd when he arrived mid-show on Sunday night.


It was the third of three sold-out shows on Lansdowne Road for Swift, and she celebrated the run of concerts with an evening in the famous Hacienda Bar later that night.

Appearing on the New Heights podcast with his brother Jason, Travis Kelce shared just how much he had enjoyed his experience in the Hacienda on Sunday – before he got some grief from his brother for not getting a taste for Gaelic football or the local attractions.

Jason Kelce urges Travis to check out Gaelic football

Irish NFL fans and rugby fans alike will have been thrilled to see Travis Kelce kitted out in an Irish rugby jersey on this week’s episode of New Heights, as he reflected on his time on the road with girlfriend Taylor Swift.

While complimenting the Irish jersey (the rugby nature of which Travis himself was unsure of), Jason Kelce asked his brother whether he had watched Gaelic football. When the answer was no, Jason gave a glowing review and urged his brother to check it out.

Jason Kelce: “Have you seen Gaelic football played?”

Travis Kelce: “No I have not.”

Jason: “Not to go on a tangent but in Havertown (Pennsylvannia), there’s a bunch of Irish inhabitants and they have a Gaelic football club that competes over in Ireland. I’ve watched it and it’s an electric sport to watch. It’s kinda like soccer and [American] football mixed together, it’s weird.”

Travis: “I might check it out.”

Travis Kelce went on to explain that he had enjoyed his evening in the Hacienda, and said that trying both Guinness on draught and a Baby Guinness shot had been particular highlights of his stay in Ireland.

However, he would receive yet more grief from his brother over his choice to forego a visit to the Guinness factory.

Did you go to the factory (“No I did not”) – dude! You missed it…

There’s some touristy things that are there for a reason. The Guinness factory, the whole story of that brewery and how it happens…I know it’s a touristy thing but they do it right.

Both of the Kelces appear to have a grá for Ireland from their respective visits to these shores, and we can only hope to see them back here soon.

Given the success of Taylor Swift’s visit on the “Eras Tour,” it seems likely that Travis, at least, could be due a return before too long.
