It had previously been reported that White House officials and Trump wanted the meeting to take place at the Doonbeg golf resort in Clare, which is owned by Trump.

The truth and lies of Donald Trump and Boris Johnson

The truth and lies of Donald Trump and Boris Johnson Barack Obama’s view of Britain is soured by the former US president’s part-Kenyan ancestry. African states would gain from the return of white colonial rule. 

However, it is understood that Varadkar and Irish officials wanted a more neutral venue to host the meeting.

Tánaiste Simon Coveney later labeled reports about a standoff between the two countries as “a total exaggeration”.

“Let me just reassure people: there’s no row, that’s the first thing. And there’s certainly no row over Doonbeg versus other locations,” he said.

It is now expected that Varadkar and Trump will meet at Shannon Airport instead.
