It’s a rich and smouldering world along whose smoky streets and damp alleys Quirke goes from bars that glimmer with peat fires and whiskey to elegant Dublin houses brimming with sexual tension.

In his white suit and hat, the six-foot-four red-headed television host Conan O'Brien was anything but inconspicuous as he walked the streets of Havana. 

The trip took place in mid-February but aired last night. 

Conan's clips include: a visit to a rum museum, rumba dance lessons and a jam session with a salsa band. It was all in the goofy, awkward and self-deprecating humor that Conan O'Brien fans expect.
