Actor John Travolta has flown himself into Shannon Airport from Florida on his own private jet for "business" in Ireland and is reported to be staying in Dromoland Castle Hotel in County Clare.

The 67-year-old Saturday Night Fever and Pulp Fiction star captured his flight on his Instagram account and said, "So tonight our flying time from Florida to Shannon is seven hours and four minutes, just so everybody knows. And I'll see you... I'll film when we arrive."

After landing he put on a rather suspect Irish accent and said, "So, I've arrived safely in Ireland. As the Irish say, 'life is what you make it,' it is, it is."

Travolta also thanked fans for supporting his aspiring pop star daughter, Ella, and her new single, Dizzy. The song is part of the 21-year-old's upcoming debut EP under the name Ella Bleu.
