U2 Travel Guide

U2 Travelguide » U2 Travel Guide » Dublin


Dublin – or Baile Átha Cliath, as it is known in Gaelic. U2’s hometown, the city they grew up in and despite their success have never turned their backs on. Dublin has changed a lot over the recent years and – partly supported by EU funds – the city is now showing itself at its best. It is definitely worth a journey, not just in order to explore U2’s rise and background – it has become one of the most exciting cities in Europe.

In our travelguide you will find all the important places where U2 history has taken place – from its beginnings in Bono’s and Larry’s childhood homes in the city’s north, via their first gigs in local pubs, to the legendary Windmill Lane and U2’s current home base, the Hanover Quay Studios.

Most of these U2 sights in Dublin can be reached by foot, only for some sights in the suburbs more mobility is required. Bus tickets are available at the official ticket offices, and it may be worth purchasing a multiple day ticket – both will take you directly to such places as Kilmainham Gaol.

Apart from U2 sights there is of course much more to see and do in Dublin. No one should miss shopping around O'Connell Street, going out in the evening in Temple Bar, a visit to Bow Street (Jameson Whiskey Distillery), or a visit to the Guinness Hopstore. We recommend the travel guide 'Vis a vis Dublin' by DK Eyewitness Travel Guides as well as the pop-out map by Mapgroup for the inner city area (both available in Dublin’s book stores and tourist shops, or the entrance area to the 'Book of Kells' in Trinity College). Those wanting to travel further around Ireland should have a look at the 'Vis a Vis, Ireland' travel guide, which also includes most of the information contained in the Dublin guide.
