I've got a (€200!!!) seat but I'd love a pitch standing at Dublin if anyone wants to help me out? :-D

I've also got a rental car and hotel booked if anyone needs a floor to sleep on. @jetstreamsurfer - I arrive 7am on the 22nd leaving 8pm 23rd.

@sylviav I'm going to Amsterdam 1 ( not found tickets for Amsterdam 2 yet - do you still have any? ) then Brussels so if anyone wants to meet up there too I'll be with a friend then.

I'm also doing Berlin, Rome and Barcelona by myself,  and if anyone can make it to London I currently have a spare GA both nights.

yes, we already have the flights supposed to fly in on Aug 21 all the way from Texas...  but I'm being priced out by the hotel rates/airbnb rates...  I underestimated accommodation costs.  I" originally wanted to stay 5 nights in Dublin but have since cut that down to 2 or 3. lol....   U2 in Dublin is on my Life's "To-Do" List. :)

Oops!  lol  yeah, I meant July 21st!   I just managed to find a hotel but not what I wanna pay... I guess it'll be my last choice if I can't find anything else...  There's going to be a U2 tribute band and fan meet up at a place called The Church Cafe Bar on the 21st evening.... I"m thinking of checking it out....provided I make it to Dublin!

I know where the church restaurant is I've been there twice, will you go? I until this moment forced to stay at hilton along the Liffey but might change, i am trying to sort out other options, as my plans changed drastically. but stil going! :D

I ve been few times in Dublin, this is gonna be a very long weekend for me alone at the end, so if someone wants to do something visit places, just drop a line or private message me 

Cheers,

Well... it doesn't look like we'll be going to Dublin.. I am unable to find reasonable accommodations for the night of the gig :o  I've been looking  for weeks!  Most everything is booked and what there is available is simply too expensive!!  I'm thinking of skipping Dublin and just flying to Paris for #2 gig.  But I think I'm going to hang on to my tickets and keep looking in the hopes of finding something last minute...

What's your budget? Remember ireland is small and Dublin has outer parts where the buses and trains go to! Places like Blanchardstown, swords(near airport), tallaght etc... they would have cheaper accommodation to the city centre and all about a 30 min bus journey to Croke park!!  Loads of b&bs

I have accommodations for each night I'm there except for July 22, the most important night of all, lol !  I was just on airbnb and found a place for $90 a night but the host doubled it after I inquired about it :/  is there a website you can refer me to regarding Dublin/Irish b&b's??  Thanks for any help :)

I just went on to a website https://m.book-a-bnb.com/saint-marthas-bnb-drumcondra.html

for example this b&b seems to have accommodation for the 22nd. It is in drumcondra so I am guessing to could be within walking distance of croke park!! And 62 Euro for the night. That's one example on the site. Don't know what is it like but I guess you don't intend staying in it for too long :)

Hi, thought I might as well ask since some of you are going alone despite other plans, does anyone have a spare ticket to sell? I'll gladly buy for face value!
