First lady Michelle Obama and her daughters are having a VIP lunch in Ireland today, reportedly dining with Irish rock superstar Bono at a pub outside Dublin.

The U2 frontman and his wife, Ali Hewson, were spotted shortly after 1 p.m. local time entering Finnegan's of Dalkey, reportedly one of their favorite restaurant spots in their hometown just south of Dublin.

Moments later, the first family - minus the president - arrived to enjoy a final meal of traditional Irish fare before departing for Germany later today.

Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha have been taking in the sites while President Obama is busy in G8 Summit meetings. The first family received a private tour earlier today of Wicklow Mountains National Park and the famous monastic sites at Glendalough.

The White House has not commented on the first family's luncheon.
