Since finishing their world tour, U2 have been enjoying the delights of home.

The boys have enjoyed Christmas drinks at the Shelbourne Hotel, a day at the races and Bono and The Edge were spotted enjoying a meal at the Cookbook Cafe in Dun Laoghaire.

The restaurant is a hotspot in the sea-side town, with famous guests such as Pat Kenny and Ian Dempsey often dropping in for a bite.

The popular haunt is owned by Audrey McDonald and her other half, Newstalk presenter Tom Dunne, is often there spinning some tunes for guests.

"It's going really well," he told the Herald.

"It was her dream to open her own restaurant, it was something she had to do and thankfully it's going well and she's loving it.

"Her food is incredible," he added.

The musical pair were also pictured at the races in Leopardstown last week.

Meanwhile the band are currently taking a breather in Dublin after wrapping up their Innocence and Experience tour in Paris earlier this month.

U2 frontman Bono took to the streets in Dublin on Christmas Eve to take part in an annual busking session with Irish star Glen Hansard, who was also joined by Hozier, Kodaline, Ronan Keating and The Script.

Hozier kicked off proceedings with Take Me to Church followed by U2's cover of When Love Comes to Town and then their song Every Breaking Wave from their latest Innocence + Experience album.

The artists performed to raise money for the Simon Community.
