U2 is one of the most successful bands in the history of the world, rising to worldwide fame after their humble beginnings as a group of friends in Dublin, Ireland.
Though they have moved far beyond the Irish capital these days, there are plenty of interesting spots to check out in Dublin if you want to experience pieces of the band’s history. Here are three must-see spots for U2 fans in the city.
The Project Arts Theatre
Just down the street from the Temple Bar in the city’s lively nightlife hub is the Project Arts Theatre, a small venue where U2 played frequently during their early days. Drummer The Edge stated, “There was a huge level of excitement amongst those who were cognizant of what was going on in musical terms,” proving that U2 always had a special “it” factor.
The Little Museum of Dublin
One of Dublin’s most fascinating museums is the cozy and wonderful Little Museum, which has a whole room and exhibition dedicated to the city’s most famous band. Here, you will find posters, rare photographs, and all kinds of memorabilia from the band’s illustrious career.
The Clarence Hotel
On Wellington Quay alongside the River Liffey is The Clarence Hotel, one of Dublin’s best places to stay. It is also special for U2 fans, as this is the place where the band used to hang out in its early days and is now owned by Bono and The Edge.
