Kings of Leon have played two of their three Dublin gigs (with the third Tuesday night in the 3Arena) and it seems they've been enjoying the shows.

Nathan Followill took to Twitter after their first gig on Saturday night to tell fans they "blew my socks off" and the crowd was "bonkers".

After the second gig he said he'd been "the sweatiest I have ever been in my career".

With two nights off before Tuesday's gig it seems pints were on the agenda.

"Time for my pintathon to begin" he declared.

He had already asked fans if they knew of "anything cool" to do in Dublin and the responses were predictably booze-related, although a couple suggested he head to the Leinster hurling final.

Among the watering holes fans suggested were popular haunts Whelans, Keoghs, the Temple Bar, and Bruxelles.

Other touristy suggestions included the Viking tour and the Guinness Storehouse.

And of course someone suggested this:

They're probably familiar with Coppers.  After all, they're 44% Irish, according to Jared.

As for the gigs, they went down an absolute storm with fans...
