WATCH: Irish lads wow crowds in Budapest with cracking rendition of Rubberbandits' Horse Outside

A 30 man stag party had a great welcome in Budapest after the group of Irish men helped out two buskers during their trip.

Michael Kelly from Derry shared a video of his friend Marty Healy serenading a crowd of onlookers with a rendition of one of Ireland's most beloved love ballads: 'Horse Outside' by the Rubberbandits.

He has a fine set of lungs on him. Michael told the Irish Examiner he and Marty regularly sing together in a band.

"We are part of a band called Kelly's Men which is an Irish band based in Derry so we always end up giving out a song or two anywhere we go.

"We all play music separately, but come together every now and then to play as a full five piece band."

The video has been watched over 600,000 times in less than a day.

"We didn't expect it to do as well as it did haha but sure it was good craic. It seems to be getting a good reception," Michael said.
