Dublin Off The Beaten Path: 302 reviews and 388 photos


"Bad Bob's country and western club, where we learn that the Irish love country music in general and Garth Brooks in particular.

Club Lapello, now a lap-dancing joint, which used to be called the Underground when the Cranberries, under the name They Do It With Mirrors, played their first show to 12 people.

Windmill Lane Studios. Kate Bush, the Chieftains, AC/DC, the Rolling Stones, Def Leppard, and the Pogues have all worked here, but the two solid city blocks of colorful graffiti comprise a shrine to Dublin's prodigal sons in U2, who recorded their first three albums - ``Boy,'' ``October,'' and ``War'' - in this quiet warehouse district.
