I'm flying from California and was able to get one seat facing the screen for Dublin1.  My first trip to Ireland (finally).  I'm planning on visiting Co Clare and Galway as well.  Let's do this.  ???☘

That's really cool.  I'm envious but happy for y'all.  I would love to do that.  I saw Queen in Madrid in the 80s and seeing a band so big in a different country was so cool.  U2 in Ireland as an American.  I can't imagine that.  One can dream...   Very cool.

One of the best bars in Dublin ..home of the wonderful Phil Lynott statue

Also , if City Centre accommodation prices are proving too expensive ,Swords is just out past the airport and has a private express bus service that stops directly out side the Point Depot ( 3arena) quite regularly..may open up some cheaper options for you

Myself and a good friend (both originally from Minnesota) are coming from Richmond VA and Las Vegas NV respectively.   We are going the the Friday 11/9 show.  Plan to spend the week prior in Ireland.  I arrive 11/3.

This will be my second U2 show in Ireland....I was lucky enough to see U2, Coldplay and RHCP at Slane Castle 8/25/2001....probably the best trip I've ever taken.

I'm coming in from NJ and can't wait - #3 & #4!.    My bucket list concert was seeing them last year in Croke Park for JT - which was AMAZING.    That was my first time in Ireland so when then announced the Dublin shows for E&I I just had to do it again.   My husband has the patience of a saint...  if not for my U2 shows from 2015 thru now we might have had a new kitchen....    LOL!
