Talk about one hot date night.

Two of Ireland's favourite couple hit the red carpet last night at the star-studded Annual Barretstown Gala Ball.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers introduced his new girlfriend Mara Lane to Ireland at the black tie affair, while Gordon D'Arcy and wife Aoife Cogan were equally stylish at the VIP event.

Cork native Jonathan (37), whose exes include Reena Hammer and model Victoria Keon-Cohen, has reportedly been seeing Mara for six months.

This is the first time the couple have been spotted together in Ireland and were glued at the hip for the glamorous charity event.

Beautiful brunette Mara dazzled in an elegant black and gold dress while Meyers teamed a dark suit with a low cut white t-shirt.

She took to social media this morning to share a photo from the event of Meyers posing with some children from Barretstown.

“TY @Barretstown 4letting us be apart of such a fun&enchanting evening. Can’t wait2volunteer &dance before meals w u," she wrote.

Meanwhile, rugby star Gordon D’Arcy (34) and his model wife Aoife Cogan (30) also attended the event.

The sharply dressed couple posed for pictures together before Gordon auctioned a fully signed Ireland rugby jersey from the Ireland v France 6 Nations game for the charity.

He was sporting a dark suit, while Aoife showed off her model figure in a plunging black gown.

Other guests on the night included Oscar winner Glen Hansard, Health Minister Leo Varadker and Ray D’Arcy who hosted the ball.

More than 1000 people attended the event to raise money for the children's charity.
