Whether you saw the wave of videos on social media or heard the screams of teenage girls across the country, you're bound to have heard that Harry Styles is in town.
The singer has been spotted strolling the streets of Dublin with actress and director Olivia Wilde, popping into seafood restaurant Sole on South William Street, and sending Irish fans into a frenzy.
The global superstar is in town ahead of his sold-out Aviva Stadium show where he is set to thrill audiences as part of his Love On Tour world tour.

As well as wandering around town, Styles decided to follow in the footsteps of Matt Damon and go for a refreshing dip in the sea.
While Damon famously opted for a Supervalu bag to throw his togs into, Styles chose a Tower Records bag for the occasion.
In photos snapped by fans, Wilde can be seen walking down the steps with Bono's daughter, Eve Hewson.
One bystander took to Twitter saying: "Imagine going for your nice little daily dip at the Vico Baths and all of a sudden up rocks Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde. I'm not a huge fan girl or anything (just a lil bit) but I’d instantly forget how to swim and almost drown tbh."

With so much focus on the Baths, we decided to list five of Dublin's most popular spots for a swim.
1. Forty Foot
Arguably Dublin's most famous swim spot, having featured in James Joyce's Ulysses, the Forty Foot is never more popular than on Christmas morning when Dubliners fling themselves into the chilly waters while wearing Santa hats.
The historic bathing spot - which was once exclusive to men - can be found at the southern tip of Dublin bay in Sandyford, with the Sandycove and Glasthule DART Station within walking distance.
If you can't stand the thought of slowly wading into cold water, you can make your way onto the cliffs left of the stairs and jump in.
Ideal for first timers and daily swimmers alike, Seapoint is one of Dublin's most accessible swim spots with plenty of access points, steps and handrails on offer, meaning you can stay within your comfort zone while taking in the beautiful views of the distant Poolbeg Chimneys and nearby Martello Tower.
Found between Blackrock and Monkstown, the handy swim spot is easily accessible by DART or paid parking can be found on nearby streets.
There is a small changing area and lifeguards are often on duty during peak times during the summer.
3. Killiney Stand
Parking can be a nightmare and you'll need to mind your toes on the rocky strand, but a swim along one of Dublin's most scenic coastlines is always worth a trip.
Found south of Dún Laoghaire, the strand has incredible views of Bray Head, Dalkey Island and Sorrento Terrace. Spread out beneath Killiney Hill, you can make an adventurous day of things with hill walking and a refreshing dip, all with one quick trip on the DART.
Lifeguards are on duty during the summer months and it's worth noting that the waters can be deep from the get go so be sure to take your time wading in.
4. Bull Island
Often visited by kite surfers and Instagrammers, Bull Island is a great spot for first-timers who want to dip a toe into the sea swimming game.
A low lying island in the northern part of Dublin bay, Bull Island is about five kilometres long and is home to some scenic bathing shelters as well as some handy steps leading into somewhat shallow waters that are ideal for beginners.
The gorgeous view of the Poolbeg Chimneys is an added bonus.
Beloved by Matt Damon and Harry Styles, this star-studded spot is nestled along the cliff edge between the affluent areas of Dalkey and Killiney.
Parking is often a nightmare and access can be tricky, but the scenic views of the cliff-walk journey make this historic bathing place something special.
Getting in and out can be tricky at the best of times, so if you'd rather avoid the ladders altogether, you can opt for a dip in the nearby seawater pool.
