U2 and Dublin @ 08:52 pm

scruby:

Hey, I've two questions.

One, there was a Bushmills competition in a pub I always go to and they won a ticket to a U2 concert. The owner of the pub received a wristband from Bushmills, before they won the competition, and he gave it to me. He said that it might be a backstage pass but he doesn’t know, so I’m uploading a picture of it here and I hope that maybe one of you will have nay idea what it might give me:

And two, I'm going to England to see U2, and my dad suggested that will fly to Dublin for a couple of days. (: It'd be my first time in Dublin, and I wanted to ask you if you can tell me about anything U2-related I can do in Dublin.

There are lots of U2-related things in the Temple Bar area of Dublin - The Clarence Hotel / The Kitchen, the huge photo on the Wall Of Fame, the Hard Rock Café which has a U2 Trabant hanging from the ceiling. :) You could also wander along the river to Windmill Lane and Hanover Quay (which will take you past the Principle Management offices on the way). Bonavox Hearing Aids is easy to find and a nice photo opportunity. If you get time, definitely take the DART to Killiney which is gorgeous, and check out Bono's gates. Plus there are various recognisable video locations around the city (Pride, Sweetest Thing, Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own).

If it's any help, I posted a writeup and photos from my Dublin trip last year (though it's a bit lengthy and covers Berlin as well). There are some handy travelguides here and here!

you might find this U2 travelguide for Dublin very helpful -- I had it printed out the first time heading for Dublin and it made me find all the important U2 spots .-)

That just would be annoying and stupid. I hopes it does give me something. I'll wear it anyway.

Thank you! That guide looks good. (:
