They’ve denied they are dating. But Rory McIlroy and Nadia Forde were recently spotted looking very comfortable on a night out together in Dublin.

The golfer and the model were spotted in the trendy House bar on Leeson Street last weekend.

They partied with a group of 10 people last Saturday night, the Sunday Independent has revealed.

Rory (25) had spent last Saturday at the Curragh in Kildare where he watched the Dubai Duty Free Derby from John Magnier’s box.

Later he met Nadia (25) at the new Brookwood restaurant on Baggot Street, and they arrived at House together.

The stunning model, who was featured in FHM magazine’s sexiest women list, wore a white top and jeans on the night.

An insider said they were seen “getting close” all night.

“There was a big group of them all together in the conservatory area. It wasn’t cordoned off, but they kept to themselves.”

“Rory’s group had about 15 lads with them and there were a few other girls as well. But Rory and Nadia were chatting all night.”

“They were sitting together and laughing and joking. They really didn’t care who saw them,” a fellow clubber said.

The pair reportedly left the club in a chauffer-driven Mercedes waiting outside.

Nadia was photographed the following day in Rory’s home town of Bangor with fellow model Katie Larmour. The model pair waved to photographers at Pickie Fun Park in the town.

Last month, Nadia denied that she was dating Rory, when she told the Sunday Independent’s Barry Egan that she wasn’t involved in McIlroy’s high profile split from tennis star Caroline Wozniacki.

Paddy Power had been offering odds of 6-1 that she will be Rory’s next girlfriend.

“I wouldn’t be betting on me if I was anyone going into Paddy Power. He doesn’t even have my phone number. And I don’t have his,” the model said.

“Look, I met him with a gang of friends last October and I haven’t seen him since. It was one of those situations where you have mutual friends and two plus two equals five!” she told the Sunday Independent.

Rory made the shock announcement that he had ended his relationship with fiancé Caroline last month after two years of dating.
