Many international superstars have graced our shores over the past few decades, and it sometimes gives us quite a laugh. Here are some of the funniest things that have happened when celebs have visited Ireland.
Britney Spears shopping in Pavillions
Even Britney needs a few bits from Penney’s every now and again. Can you imagine it? You’re in the queue picking up some socks and a few other wee bits and the princess of pop is behind you. Man, that is what dreams are made of.
Britney Spears randomly wandering around Swords Pavillions today is easily the funniest thing I’ve heard in ages she just went to Butlers for a coffee imagine Britney Spears standing behind you in a queue in Swords of all places hahaha

Drake eating at Eddie Rockets in Tallaght
During his Assassination Vacation Tour last year, Drake stopped off in Dublin and hung around in Tallaght. He was spotted in the National Basketball Arena before stopping off at Eddie Rockets in The Square Shopping Centre. Iconic.
Tory Lanez in Jervis? Drake in Tallaght? I swear if Rihanna pops up in Scrumdiddly’s I’ll lose it

Kim and Kanye going to the cinema in Portlaoise
Honestly, did this happen or is it just some weird dream I had?

Beyoncé and Jay Z having a casual stroll around Phoenix Park
Beyoncé and Jay Z, AKA the literal king and queen of the world, were in Dublin back in 2014 while Beyonce was on her Mrs Carter World Tour. The pair decided to take their daughter Blue Ivy to Dublin Zoo before strolling freely through Phoenix Park. Can you imagine how the deer felt when BEYONCÉ walked past? I’d die.
These photos of Beyonce at Phoenix park and Dublin zoo are too casual I can't deal 😦 pic.twitter.com/rvYhAWB9Am

Woody Harrelson playing bingo in Waterford
Back in 2014, Woody Harrelson stopped off in Waterford for a bit of bingo with his pal Keith Barry, as you do. Honestly, this photo raises more questions than it answers.

Grace Jones having a bop in Workman’s
I actually just don’t even know what to say about this one. I would say an absolute bop was had.

Hugh Jackman having his first pint of Guinness
How does one go 50 years without having a pint of Guinness? Well, Hugh Jackman did. And when he was in Dublin recently, he finally got to try it.

John C. Reilly performing in Gus O’Connor’s Pub in Doolin
This looks like so much fun and I’m freaked I wasn’t there.
What an absolute LEDGE-BAG 😍
The amazing John C. Reilly preforming in Gus O'Connor's Pub in Doolin – the best pub for a sesh and a song in Ireland ❤️

Chaos ensuing when Justin Bieber played basketball in Dublin
When Justin Bieber plays basketball in Bushy Park, Terenure, you know crowds of people will soon be there to watch.
And that’s exactly what happened. The footage alone is giving me a headache.
Courtney Cox having lunch in Applegreen in Lusk
When you think of one of the stars of possibly the most successful TV comedy of all time heading for lunch in Ireland, you probably don’t think of her heading to a North County Dublin petrol station.
We had a very special ‘Friend’ drop by to Applegreen Lusk North! 👩🏻🙂🍏 pic.twitter.com/nefUZFMxhL
