Larry has a pad in Manhattan. and why not?

Adam has a place in London.  I think he used to have a place in New York too, but I understand he got pi**ed off with always being molested at the airport whenever he entered the US on account of a prior drug conviction.  He wondered out loud whether Sir Paul (if you please) McCartney got the same treatment whenever he entered the US.

This is what I've heard and read in interviews, but it may not be accurate right now.

Three have NYC apartments, Adam sold his a few years ago and it's unknown if he has another one.

All four have places in the Nice, France area. Unless Adam sold that one off too, in Grasse, but may have sold it in anticipation of another property. Adam did buy a house on Saint Jean Cap Ferrat (Nice) a few years ago, but may have had to sell it. (Adam has admitted to being a terrible business man and rumors were he got himself into some trouble, nothing substantial to back that up though).

Larry owns a farm type place outside of NYC, but close to the city.

Adam has had several houses in London over the years.

Edge has lots of property in Malibu, we all know that! :)

Edge and Bono own mansions in Killiney, Ireland (a very exclusive town) which I visited. The town's so exclusive that the houses don't have numbers, they have names. Bono's is named Temple Hill, and Edge's is named Fortlands. Adam owns a house in Rathfarnam.

so no danger of asylum seekers being housed there then?

 I don't know, all I know is it is north of the city. He doesn't strike me as a Westchester County kind of guy though. But I think you need to some PI work for us! I'm curious what kind of community he would live near.

I don't know how it is in Ireland but in the UK a lot of the villages (and even small cities) have names instead of numbers.  Don't think that's an indicator of it being a nice neighborhood.

I've only seen a few pics of Bono's house but its so beautiful, like old-fashioned and
big and near the sea. I could never leave if I lived there. I always imagine him sitting
by a big window in a cozy room and writing music while looking out at the sea & maybe a fireplace going.

Good question.

Bono…..I think has a manor in Ireland built in the nineteenth century, apartment in New York City and a villa in South France.

Edge….has a mansion/home in Malibu California.  I could be wrong.

Larry, Adam…..manors in Ireland.  Maybe other homes.  Not sure.

I get the sense that Bono and Edge doesn't spend much time in Ireland anymore. Bono splits most of his time between NYC and France. The Edge is in CA a lot. Larry and Adam seem to show up in Irish papers more often. Just my casual impression.

I think you are right.  I remember reading somewhere that Bono has his principle residence in NYC.

No refugees will be living near to Bono, that's for certain.  They won't be looking out over Central Park from the San Remo, or looking out to the Med from his villa in Nice or out to the bay from his Mansion in Killiney.
