Rockstar Rod Stewart was snapped visiting legendary Dublin pub The Gravediggers.

The 77-year-old singer, who previously recorded a cover of The Dubliner’s track ‘Grace’ visited the boozer in Glasnevin on Wednesday May 4th.

Taking to social media, the public house shared: “What a legend so delighted that Mr Rod Stewart stopped in..yes folks music legend…”

“And today on the date that Grace Glifford & Joseph Plunkett where married in 1916 & the same date he was executed,” they said in reference to the Irish folk song he once sang.

"Oh Grace, just hold me in your arms and let this moment linger,” they added.

The snap shows the Maggie May crooner leaning against the bar while two bartenders pose behind him.

Last year he bought a residential property in Ballsbridge, Dublin 4.

In an interview with Miriam O’Callaghan on RTÉ Radio 1 in November, he said the property was “in Ballsbridge, near the Aviva. That’s how much I love Dublin.”

A keen sports fan, Stewart said he was delighted to be able to watch matches in the Aviva from the comfort of his home.

“If I get out on my balcony, I’m going to see (rugby and football) crowds on a Saturday afternoon. The oceans and beaches, it’s gorgeous,” he said.
