While in Dublin, we’re staying in the Docklands, by Hanover Quay. It’s a newly remodeled area of the city with a huge theater just behind us and modern apartment buildings all around. But, there are a handful of the old left scattered in too. Apparently an unassuming, plain looking, old building on the edge of the Grand Canal Dock was U2’s practice/recording studio. Looking across the canal, this is what we see. A mix of boats, old buildings – factories and mills, and new buildings – apartments and offices (like Google in the tall black one).
