If you were in Smithfield in Dublin yesterday, one person you may not have expected to see treading the cobblestones was Ludacris.

The rapper and actor, best known for his role as Tej Parker in the 'Fast and the Furious' movie franchise, has been in Dublin for the past couple of days.

It's not known whether he's here in a professional or personal capacity, but he's certainly been indulging in some our of best-known tourist attractions.

One of them include a tour at the Jameson Distillery in Smithfield, where he posted various clips to his Instagram stories. He also posted a picture of himself tasting aged whiskey straight from the barrel - which was, as the clip in his story suggested, 57% alcohol. (Unfortunately, there's no 'after' photo.)

He was also spotted in Smithfield restaurant My Meat Wagon...


The previous day, the 41-year-old had uploaded a video of himself with his hotel concierge discussing how great Detroit is at 2.30am:

Ludacris has been on a family holiday in Europe in recent weeks, posting pictures of himself, his wife and his daughters in Italy, Croatia and France - but it looks like his trip to Ireland has been solo.

In any case, slainte!
