On Sunday, Dublin city got a small taste of Hollywood when the Golden Globe winning film ‘Lincoln’ hosted its European premiere at the Savoy Theater on O’Connell Street.

On hand for the premiere was the film’s star Daniel Day-Lewis, who just last week scooped up a Golden Globe for Best Actor in the film. The film’s director Steven Spielberg was also at the premiere, and took time to snap a few pictures with the excited Irish fans. Also present was ‘Mrs Lincoln’ Sally Field.

Though born in England, actor Daniel Day-Lewis now lives in Wicklow, Ireland, holds dual citizenship, and identifies more closely with Ireland. He has promised to premiere his next film in Ireland in order to help benefit the Wicklow Hospice Foundation.

Other big names who were in attendance at the premiere were Olympic gold medalist Katie Taylor, U2 frontman Bono and guitarist The Edge, and Irish president Michael D. Higgins and his wife Sabina - all of whom were invited as special guests on behalf of Day-Lewis.
