While their fellow international Jonathan Sexton is adjusting to becoming a first-time dad, Irish rugby team mates Luke Fitzgerald and Ian Madigan have been letting loose in the Algarve.
Following a successful end to their season with Leinster, the good looking Blues pals have been unwinding in the sunshine in Portugal, the Diary can reveal.
The duo are currently tanning themselves at the exclusive Quinta do Lago resort and have been joined by a string of players from the Leinster Under 20s squad while making the most of their time off from the pitch.
Although top winger Luke is currently loved up with Cheryl O'Rourke, newly single Ian is no doubt on the lookout for romance.
He and his childhood sweetheart went their separate ways last month and the outhalf was spotted partying the night away at a beach party on Saturday night with a group of friends.
"The guys had their own section in the bar but no one bothered them and they spent hours chilling and dancing with other revellers," a source said.
A number of celebrities flock to the popular destination every summer.
Retired footballer David Beckham and his wife Victoria are currently residing there, while Westlifer Nicky Byrne and his other half Georgina are set to travel over in July with their three children.
Also holidaying in the area are Jamie Heaslip and his 29-year-old former model girlfriend Sheena O'Buachalla.
Kildare native Jamie started Sheena dating in the summer of 2010.
The romance fizzled out, but they rekindled their love and have been a steady item since early in 2012.
