Just curious where in the world people will be travelling from, for the Dublin show - thought it would be a fun post.
My husband and I are flying in from central Wisconsin, USA. When I heard the boys would be touring for the JT again, I told hubby I was going, and we built an 8 day Ireland vacation around the tour  :)  I would have liked to hop over to Paris for the Wednesday show, but we're going to Sligo instead to find where hubbys ancestors are from.
First saw U2 30 years ago on both legs of the JT tour in Chicago at the Rosemont Horizon, thanks to my parents taking off work and driving me 5 hours to the show.

How about you?

What a wonderful vacation. If you have time, go west in Ireland. My favorite place in the world (besides Michigans Upper Peninsula). Enjoy!

I'm coming all the way from....Clare :P

Definitely do some driving along the coast, either or both ways from Sligo! Google the wild Atlantic way for some great guides, enjoy!

My Wife and I will be travelling from Hamilton, Ontario Canada (an hour from Toronto).  Saw them in Dublin in 2009 (360 Tour).  The atmosphere in Dublin cannot be matched, anywhere!

Perhaps they will get lucky and find tickets the day of the show!

Thanks everyone for the tips on what to see in Ireland.
Keep the "where in the world" locations coming!

I'll be coming from Washington, DC. I plan on traveling up the Antrim Coast and then over to Malin Head the week before. I plan on taking a whole day to drive from Dublin to Portsrush, stopping frequently whenever I feel like it.

It's almost 20 years to the day when I saw U2 in Dublin as a college kid, getting ready to study abroad in Europe that year. I feel so old now. haha

I'm flying into Dublin all the way from the North West of England---so a 30 minute flight.I'm only staying for one night, though.

I've been to Dublin many times and also visited Sligo where my late Mum's ancestors came from.Portrush is a lovely place and the Antrim coast is a must.

There's a cosy little Greek restaurant called Corfu on Parliament St that I might try to visit before I leave.I wish I was going for longer!
