Hollywood A-listers 'blown away' by Ireland as they hit Dublin premiere

It is the end of the line for Hollywood A-listers Kevin Hart and Josh Gad as the pair finished off their international tour for the The Wedding Ringer in Dublin this evening.

Sampling some of the cities finer points, the comedic duo said they were “blown away” by the reception they’d received while here.

“So far I’m blown away, blown away right now,” said Kevin Hart. “It is the last stop on our international tour, and we’re leaving the best til last – going out with a bang!” he laughed.

Having hit the Guinness Storehouse on the way to tonight’s premier in Dublin's Savoy cinema, American actor Josh Gad said he’d bring some of the black stuff home with him.

“ I want to smuggle it back, I’m not going to lie. I want to bring a barrel of it to my family,” he laughed.

The pair said they'd be coming back to Dublin soon. “This definitely isn’t the last time you are going to see me here, get used to it," said Hart.

Aside from taste testing Guinness in the Storehouse, the pair also gate crashed Dublin GAA player Eamon Fennell's wedding suit fitting in Louis Copeland in the city centre.

Josh Gad, best known for voicing loveable snowman Olaf in Disney's hit film Frozen, said it was a memorable 12 hours.

The movie tells the story of a friendless groom to be (Gad) who rents a best man (Hart) for his big day.
