WATCH: President Michael D Higgins is in Game of Thrones, and other misunderstandings Web Summit tourists have about Ireland

YouTuber Jamie Jay Car took to the streets of Dublin to find out what the Web Summit tourists know about Ireland.

Given attendees have travelled from all over the world to the tech conference which is currently in full swing at the RDS in Ballsbridge, it's not surprising many are unfamiliar with our language and traditions.

They attempt to get their tongues around 'Oisin' and 'Dun Laoghaire', and explain why we celebrate St Patrick's Day (beer is our main motivation, apparently).

When asked what Michael D Higgins is famous for they suggest, "drinking", he's a "porn star", and ask if he's in hit HBO series Game of Thrones!
