Modern Family star Nolan Gould has taken to social media to share a picture of his visit to Dublin and revealed to fans he has officially tried his first pint of the black stuff.

The 19-year-old actor, who plays youngest sibling, Luke Dunphy, on the popular ABC sitcom started the New Year off on a high by visiting the Gravity Bar at the Guinness Storehouse.

Coldplay frontman Chris Martin recently made a guest appearance as himself in Modern Family. The episode, in which the Dunphy family recall their encounters with famous people, sees dad Phil (Ty Burrell) reliving the time he was trying to sell Martin a house, while also having a "health issue".

Modern Family was renewed for a tenth series last year. Over its eight years on the air, the show has won 22 Emmy awards, five of which were for Outstanding Comedy Series for its first five seasons.
