Beyoncé and Jay-Z hang out in Dublin playground

R&B queen Beyoncé is currently in the middle of a sellout stint at Dublin's O2 arena, and while she's in Dublin she's been enjoying the sights of the capital.

But not for Bey the glitter and glam of A-List parties and the velvet rope - she and husband Jay-Z were yesterday spotted taking daughter Blue Ivy to the playground in the Phoenix Park.

Just like normal people.

Dubliner Elaine met the famous couple while Blue Ivy was enjoying the swings and roundabouts, and she told FM104's Strawberry Alarm Clock show all about the experience.e

"So in front of Beyoncé, you said 'that fella is the image of Jay-Z'?"

Classic.

The singer was also spotted in Masterchef mentor Dylan McGrath's Dublin restaurant on Sunday night, where she enjoyed a low-key post-gig meal with her hubby as her entourage were whooping it up at a VIP after-party in the Grafton Lounge.

The family are staying in the penthouse at Dublin's plush Fitzwilliam Hotel - the perfect base to soak up the sights and sounds of the capital.
