If you've used the same pre sale code then sometimes they cancel the tickets, sometimes they don't. I believe you're allowed a max of 4 tix for this pre sale.

Go on booking.com mate,you can book a hotel on there and you dont pay anything until you get there

Dont mean to scare you either but i pretty sure if you over use your code they cancel all your tickets not just the extras youve brought. Buying on different countries ticketmasters will probably hide this though. Seems to be hit and miss with cancellations

I paid €250 for 1night for me and the wife. Crazy price but that was the cheapest hotel! For the I&E tour we only paid about €110 for 1night in the Arlington in the city centre.

Hey guys, first time poster here. So when are people lining up for GA? I've only seen U2 twice (both times on the Elevation tour - 17 years ago!!!), and I remember getting in line around noon or so, and being able to get inside the heart for that tour. Should I expect to line up around noon again? I'm going to the Vancouver show, fwiw.

It's the #1 reason why I have to skip Dublin once again... one day I just bought the bullet and do it, but the prices are fucking coocoo. Direct flight are over a thousand round trip from NYC area airports... which, hey, if I'm making a week trip out of it, fine. But for just a quick jaunt over it's simply not worth it.

Maybe if it was Slane...

I don't know why but flight prices(from the UK) and hotel prices are through the roof for this. I don't get it, it was nothing like this for I&E, perhaps because that was spread out over a number of nights? I'm looking at, all in around £650 for the two of us for flights, tickets and hotel for 1night in Dublin. I almost wish I'd never bought the tickets now as I've also got to get myself to Twickenham and the accommodation for that, it'll be well over £1000 for this tour.

Booked all this on Wednesday, got my GA tickets for croke. Flights from Birmingham to Dublin were £60, thats there and back. theres 3 of us going in a triple room which cost £70 each (£210 for the room) all in all its cost me £200 for the trip. That to me is really good and would roughly cost around the same if i went to london. Tickets,trains and hotel.

Ryanair are wanting £385 return overnight for two of us from Glasgow to Dublin! I got £9 return flights for the I&E tour! I'm waiting hoping the price drops in a month or two. If not we'll fly to Belfast for £80 return and get the bus down.

£385 bloody hell that is steep. Supose the only other option is flying further down south maybe Manchester. But then that price to belfast is good so save u traveling down south maybe better traveling south in ireland.

Yeah, Aer Lingus want £340. Is there something else on that weekend in Dublin as every other weekend or day is only around £100 return? I can't believe they've inflated prices because of a U2 concert?! I'll hold off a few months and see then if prices come down, if worst comes to the worst we'll get the ferry to Belfast and bus down.

The hotels would definitely be inflated because of the concert,it happened on the 360 tour when i went. I wouldnt of thought that it would effect the flights though but im just guessing.

Try this site mate, aer lingus flights coming up at £222 return for two people
