Dublin’s Rock N Roll

Dublin’s Rock N Roll history and sites

Dublin city is famed for it’s music, you are never far from a live performance, whether it’s a busker on Grafton Street or a gig in one of the city’s many venues. To help you get a feel for Dublin’s Rock N Roll history, here are our top 3 things to do on Dublin’s Roll N Roll Trail.

Of all the world renowned musicians that came from our fair city, U2 are by far the most famous. You can see a lot of the Dublin landmarks used in their video’s including, the East-Link bridge, Merrion Square and the Pepper Pot Church, simply by strolling around the city. One that you might miss out on is their recording studio on Windmill Lane, this 3 story building is where most of U2’s hits were recorded and the area surrounding it is a legal graffiti wall, giving the area a really unique look.

If you like a bit of a pop quiz, stop by the wall of Fame in Dublin’s Temple Bar, were many of the greats of Irish Rock N Roll are celebrated in picture, see if you can name all of them or just pick out your favourites.

Dublin’s most Rock N Roll pub is Bruxelles just off Grafton Street and is marked with a life sized statue of the late and great Phil Lynott, the leader singer of Thin Lizzy. The pub was a favourite haunt of Phil’s and the basement is still a venue and hang out for Dublin’s rock crowd.
