Hi, I have been listening to U2 since back in 79:) I am now planning to visit Dublin in August. I would love to get some ideas of what to see in the city. Have a great day.

Welcome! 79? Wow, that's the longest I've heard anyone following U2. How had you even heard of them then?

Can't help with Dublin pointers, sorry. Been once but I was too young, though not too young to remember (which I do fondly - including the triple rainbow I saw in Dun Laoghaire).

I am getting old :) I bought the boy album when it came, i realize it came in october 80.
We will visit the whole of Ireland as well, so all input are most welcome.

Ok, 1980 is more reasonable, but still, how had you heard of them in 1980?! And from Sweden?

Iíve been to Ireland once. Didnít see the whole country and canít give pointers on U2 stuff, but if you have any interest in history or archeology at all donít miss Newgrange. Itís a 5000 year old prehistoric tomb not far from Dublin. The Cliffs of Moher deserve their reputation ó theyíre on the west coast. Thereís lots to see really, and the Irish are great. Be sure to catch some live trad music while youíre there too.
