The Royal Family have safely touched down on Irish soil, and after just one day in the Emerald Isle, they've been spotted supping on pints of "the black stuff".

First hitting up Dublin before they journey across the country to Meath, Kildare and Galway, a tour is currently underway of Kate and William in Ireland this week.

Landing themselves in the country's top tourist attraction, the pair of them headed straight for a pint in the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin last night.

William gave a speech to those in attendance and managed to fire off a bit of banter about his grandmother's appearance nearly a decade ago: "In coming to the Guinness Storehouse, we are retracing the footsteps of my grandmother, who was shown how to pour the perfect pint here in 2011.

"Ladies and Gentlemen let me tell you it is not often that I find myself following the Queen to a pub. But I am looking forward to testing for myself the theory that Guinness tastes even better in Ireland than overseas."

Kate and William also met President Micheal D Higgins and his wife Sabina at Aras an Uachtarain earlier in the day.

And their Bernese Mountain doggy Bród, of course.

Here's some of the best reaction Kate and William in Ireland has been getting on Twitter.

Kate and William in Ireland can only get so much traction before we circle back to Miggledy.
