SUPERSTARS One Direction have been partying with fans since arriving in Ireland ahead of their Late Late Show appearance.
Mullingar-born Niall Horan and his band mates Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik flew into Dublin on Thursday and kicked off their first night in town unwinding at two local nightclubs,the Grafton Lounge and Lillies Bordello.
A source told the Irish Independent that the 'Up All Night' singers arrived to the Grafton Lounge accompanied by six bodyguards and spent a few hours mingling and dancing with the crowd.
"They came under tight security but didn't want to be put in a closed off area by themselves at all. They had a couple of drinks and chatted to everyone."
Obviously making the most of some well-deserved time off, the quintet then continued the evening at nearby Lillies,where they stayed until 2am.
"They were given a private section in Lillies but they were still moving around to talk to people and take pictures.
"They were extremely laid back and just seemed to be happy to have a break from their hectic schedules."
The venue is fast becoming a celebrity haunt - Cheryl Cole visited last week after her Dublin show.
It is believed that the band, who came to prominence on the X Factor, are staying at the Fitzwilliam Hotel in Dublin.
Niall Horan tweeted this afternoon: "I'm home! We are in dublin today! Late late show tonight! Loadsa other promo too! Glad t be home!"
