Ian James Bell’s was discovered at Smugglers Cafe in Portmagee, Co Kerry around midday on Tuesday, according to The Examiner.
The wallet reportedly contained his driver’s license, cards, and cash.
Lorraine Casey, the owner of Smugglers Cafe, noted that Bell had likely recently traveled to Northern Ireland judging by receipts that were also in the wallet.
Casey, who got the word out on Facebook about the wallet, said: "Hopefully someone might know him if he's not on social media.”
