Actor Peter Coonan stepped straight off the stage into celebrity haunt Lillie's Bordello after a long week entertaining crowds.

The Dubliner, who is best known for playing psycho gangster Fran in Love/Hate, is currently appearing in the Gate Theatre's A View From The Bridge by Arthur Miller ,and to celebrate a successful week on stage, Peter (inset) and his castmates ventured to the city centre hotspot on Saturday night to party into the early hours.

Peter wasn't the only famous face to turn up in the club this weekend - Fair City's (and Lillie's regulars) Jenny Dixon and John Duggan were also spotted enjoying a night out.

David Crowley from TV3's Red Rock was also out and about in Lillie's alongside newly cast Vikings actor David Pearse, who is currently filming the next season of the smash hit historical drama.

The Keatings hit House

It's been over a month since their lavish wedding in Scotland, and Ronan Keating and his new wife Storm have finally returned to Ireland - wasting no time on hitting one of their favourite Dublin hotspots.

The newlyweds (left), who said 'I do' in August, had barely landed on Irish soil before heading to Leeson Street eatery and club House to catch up with their nearest and dearest.

Enjoying a couple of days off school, Ronan's daughters Missy (14) and Ali (10) joined their dad and new step-mum for lunch in the trendy venue.

Also out and about in the city were former Ireland rugby star Peter Stringer and his wife Debbie O'Leary, who were back on home soil for the weekend from Sale in England where Peter plays. After a romantic few days away in Dubai, Peter and Debbie enjoyed breakfast in Sophie's at the Dean Hotel in Dublin. The scrum-half was on TV3's panel of analysts for the Ireland Romania game yesterday.
