You might think you've got the coolest granny in town, but one glance at Baddie Winkle (Helen Ruth Van Winkle to be official), and you'll take that back.

The 89-year-old granny became an internet sensation a few years ago when her granddaughter posted a photo of her wearing an Ungrateful Dead t-shirt online.

Baddie instantly became a style icon and has done fashion campaigns with brands such as Missguided, and she has over 3million Instagram followers. And now, now, it appears she's in Dublin.

Tola Vintage shared a snap of Baddie Winkle in their store earlier today and the old dame look as fab as ever.

She's looking extra AF. 

Baddie is over in Dublin as part of a #BadAssBucketList trip, with Isabelle Pinson, VP of EMEA at saying: “Baddie has already enjoyed some amazing bucket list experiences and destinations, from making bad ass cocktails at a rooftop bar in New York, to samba dancing in Rio de Janeiro and enjoying eye-popping performances at the Moulin Rouge in Paris. Ireland was top of Baddie’s wish list though, so partying in Temple Bar will have been her most rewarding experience yet.”

And she looks like she had a seriously great night out on the town
