Garth Brooks treated locals in Dick Mack's Pub in Dingle, Co Kerry to a nice surprise when he walked through the doors.
Brooks drove the rumor mill into overdrive this week amidst his much-hyped string of gigs at Dublin's Croke Park, and speculation was rife that the "Ireland" singer would be taking a much-needed break in the Kingdom of Kerry in between his concerts.
On September 13, the speculation became reality when Brooks treated the unexpected crowd in the Dingle pub to a few songs, and even went behind the bar to pull a pint of Guinness with a little help from the bartenders.
In a clip shared with IrishCentral, Brooks is seen tuning his guitar before singing an acoustic version of "Piano Man" by Billy Joel, and the crowd soon follows suit for a beautiful impromptu singalong.
