They flew in for one night only, but what a night it was.

After a series of clips featuring 'Ron Burgundy' hailing Anne Doyle, the Late Late Toy Show and even RTÉ's gritty Love/Hate drama, the Hollywood cast of Anchorman 2 finally touched down on Irish soil for a screening of the new comedy flick.

The arrival of Will Ferrell, Steve Carell and Paul Rudd certainly didn't go unnoticed, with the social set scrambling to nab tickets to share the red carpet with the American actors.

The lucky few to attend the Savoy Cinema on Dublin's O'Connell Street included Jennifer Maguire, Jason Byrne, as well as models Roz Purcell and Vogue Williams.

Actor Domhnall Gleeson dashed in without stopping to chat, while Peter Coonan wasn't letting his pregnant girlfriend out of his sight.

The main men were in flying form, and when they reached us media, they raved about the quality of Guinness and their excitement for the steak dinner they'd be tucking into an hour later.
