Justin Bieber wasn't too impressed when some Irish fans approached him on a Kildare street on Tuesday.

He's used to selling out stadium tours all over the world but it appears that even global superstars like Bieber can get a little camera shy.

When he was approached by two fans in Maynooth ahead of his 3Arena show on Wednesday, the Grammy-nominated singer wasn't too impressed.

As the fans filmed him as he walked down Main Street, the 23-year-old shielded his face with his laptop.

He then walked over to his fans to give them a telling off.

“You think that’s nice? You guys think that’s nice to put...”, he said before his young fans put their phones away and cut him off.

One of the fans, Caoimhe McGovern from Rathcoffey in Kildare, said she was "disappointed" by Bieber's reaction.

"I'm a big fan, I was a bit disappointed by his reaction but still delighted I got to meet him," she wrote on Twitter.

"When he said 'do you guys think that it's nice to put a camera in someone's face without their permission?' I put my phone down and he got into his car."

Bieber had been staying in the K Club while he was in Ireland for his sold-out Purpose wold tour.

He appeared upbeat throughout his performance, engaging with the fans and telling them that Ireland was one of his "favourite places".

"This is one of my favourite places to be in the whole wide world. I'm so happy to be back here," he told the screaming crowds.

On Monday, he was spotted dining in a Maynooth eatery and playing basketball in Bushy Park in South Dublin.
