Conor McGregor and Dee Devlin have visited his Black Forge Inn for the first time since it reopened as they arrived back home to Dublin. 

McGregor declared the spot “Ireland’s original” in an Instagram post alongside a picture of himself beaming at the camera with Dee and baby Rían who was christened in Rome last week.

The UFC star reportedly bought the site for nearly €2m and pumped in a further €1m in renovations before it reopened its doors earlier this year.

It has since become a popular spot among locals with his sister Aoife replying to his post: "Best place in the world”.

McGregor appeared happy in the pictures as he posed with locals, despite his recent announcement that his beloved pet pooch Hugo had died.

McGregor broke news of the passing of his best friend of 10 years in an emotional Instagram post.

“So heart broken to say my dog Hugo has passed away. He was with me all the way, my closest companion,” he wrote. “From sleeping on a bed frame without a mattress to everything else that came after.

"Thank you for all the work put in alongside me to get this life correct for our family. All the love and cuddles we will miss forever and ever our Hugo! Gutted"

The whole McGregor clan spent a week in Rome for newborn Rían's christening in the Vatican City where the former two-weight world champion met Roma manager Jose Mourinho and visited the Sistine Chapel.

However, the trip was marred by claims by Italian DJ Francesco Facchinetti that the UFC star struck him in an unprovoked attack at a party.

Police were apparently called after McGregor allegedly got into the scuffle while the two attended an event at the St Regis hotel.
