BURGERS and porter were the order of the day for Charlie Sheen and rock-pal Slash as two pals enjoyed a night out in Dublin last night.

It wasn’t exactly rock ’n’ roll – but when you have Charlie Sheen and Slash partying, all can be forgiven.

The pair pitched up to Lillie’s after Slash’s sellout gig in the Olympia, which Charlie opened especially for his friend.

After the show, the pair headed to the club where a special VIP area was curtained off, allowing them to chill out in style under tight security.

Teetotaller Slash stayed on water, while others in the party enjoyed the Porterhouse’s Temple Brau lager.

At one stage, several trays of food from next door’s McDonald’s was ferried up to the hungry party who opted to dine on burgers and fries.

Earlier, Sheen sparked huge excitement among his Irish fans after an impromptu appearance at the start of the legendary Guns N’ Roses guitarist's show.

He jetted into Dublin on Saturday evening, before heading to the Four Seasons Hotel where he stayed on Sunday before hitting the city centre for Slash’s gig.

Sheen warmed up the crowd for him nicely, meeting with huge cheers from the audience as he introduced Slash and his band to the stage.

The actor revealed how he had landed in the capital city over the weekend alongside a woman identified as his girlfriend Georgia Jones.

Award-winning musician Slash and Sheen have been long-time friends and decided to have an Irish reunion in one of the party capitals of Europe.

The rock legend will perform a second gig at the Olympia tonight.

When Slash got his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last year, it was the Wall Street actor who paid tribute to him during the ceremony.

And shortly after landing in Ireland, outspoken Charlie didn’t waste much time before sparking controversy after posting up a series of bizarre pics and comments.

One photo showed him inside his hotel wardrobe in a crucifixion- style pose with a tube of toothpaste tied around his neck.

He wrote: “And on the first night, Jesus saved Ireland.”

The part-Irish star also posted a picture of himself having a cigarette at Dublin Airport, wearing his trademark trilby and posing with a pretty brunette and an airline staff member.

The accompanying caption read: “Welcome to Dublin... #gluten free black pudding.”

His shaggy-haired pal wasn’t slow in following suit, with Slash paying tribute to the legendary guitarist Rory Gallagher on Twitter.

“Rory Gallagher would have been 65 today, happy birthday Rory. Fitting time to be in Ireland.”

He also remarked about the name of shop on Nassau Street:

“Just passed a store named Knobs & Knockers. If my wife and I are ever in need of door accessories, that’s our store.”

While Slash has been here many times, this is Charlie’s first visit.
