Niall Horan may be loving the Oz lifestyle, but the Mullingar singer couldn’t resist popping into his local for a spot of familiar Irish charm.

The 20-year-old took a break from his busy touring schedule in Australia to drop into Irish bar Snug Public House in Melbourne.

Dressed casually in a white, patterned t-shirt, grey hooded jumper and jeans, the singer posed for a snapshot with the one of the bar’s owners Kim Keenan.

“Cheers to One Direction’s Niall Horan who dropped into the Snug Public House today for a feed and a few pints. Very nice young man who’s doing Mullingar proud!! Best of luck with the tour,” the pub wrote as they posted the snapshot online.

The pub, a popular spot for a familiar Irish face, have welcomed stars such as the Munster rugby legends and Brendan Grace through their doors.

It looks like Irish neighbours should keep an eye on the pub’s doors this weekend, as One Direction singers Niall Horan and Harry Styles have both said they’d choose a pub over a nightclub any night.

The boys said they prefer to catch up with friends in a place where they can have a chat.

“I never go out clubbing!” Niall told Bliss magazine.

“I only go to the pub.

“I hate clubs, you can’t talk to anyone. You have to shout at them!”

Harry added; “And there’s sticky tables!”
