Chill out in the Park with a bacon sambo or get some chips - fans' quirky tips for Eva on visit here

HOllywood actress Eva Longoria has landed in Dublin and is looking for suggestions for discovering the capital's most popular destinations.

And, so far, the recommendations had included bacon butties and fish and chips.

The former Desperate Housewives actress is in town for this week's Web Summit.

"Ok DUBLIN! Here I come, what is a must see and must eat when I land?," the 39-year-old Tweeted as she landed in Dublin Airport early this morning.

Among the well-known destinations suggested were Temple Bar, Harry's on the Green and the Shelbourne Hotel.

One fan recommended Dublin chip shop institution Beshoff's with Longoria replying, "Oooh I love fish and chips".

Meanwhile, she said "sounds nice" when another said she should "sit in the Phoenix Park with a bacon sandwich".

Other locations suggested are St Stephen's Green and a visit to Trinity College to see the Book of Kells.

The American actress, best known for her portrayal of Gabi Solis in Desperate Housewives will speak tomorrow at the opening of the Web Summit in the RDS.

She will be speaking about her experiences as a philanthropist, which includes The Eva Longoria Foundation which helps Latina women build better futures for themselves and their families through education and entrepreneurship.

Also included in Longoria's list of philanthropic exploits are Eva's Heroes, a charity which helps mentally disabled children.
