Ireland: Following in the footsteps of Bono and U2 in Dublin

On the occasion of the publication of the memoirs of the singer of U2 Bono (Surrender), the Irish Tourist Board has charted rockstar influences across Dublin, from Mount Temple Comprehensive School in Clontarf, where the four U2 members first met, to the Bonavox hearing aid store on North Earl Street, which inspired Paul Hewson. Singer’s real name – stage name.

A route that can be taken and followed U2 walking trail. Through the streets of the Irish capital. The circuit passes by Croke Park, the country’s largest stadium, Hanover Quay Studios, where U2 recorded for more than 20 years, a graffiti-adorned building in the group’s glory, and Windmill Lane.

The Clarence Hotel on Wellington Quay, now owned by Bono and Edge, and U2 music video locations include: Fitzwilliam Square (the sweetest thing) Or Sandymount Strand in Dublin Bay Pride (in the name of love).

The last essential step: The Little Museum of Dublin There the ‘U2: Made in Dublin’ exhibition features memorabilia and cult items related to the group.
