Things to See and Do

So my dad found out I'm saving for a trip to Ireland. Actually, it's debatable whether this is for Ireland or just for following the next tour, but he's shocked that U2 is a reason to visit the isle. I want to present a list. Give me plenty of U2 items to put on it... Make some up, I don't care.

You could tell him that you are looking for a leprechan, you need the pot o' gold.

Finding BONO in Ireland would be better than finding a pot of gold. He must be the prize at the end of the rainbow for fans who go there looking.

If I were to go to Ireland on a U2 trip I would be visiting the following:

-The Clarence
-The Kitchen
-The Gates in front of Bonos
-BONOVOX the hearing aid store
-Mount Temple High
-Edge's house
-Larry's two houses
-Adams castle
-Bono's childhood home
-The Studio
-That rock that you can kiss (Bono has kissed it, and that is the closest I will ever get*LOL*)
-Bono's bro's resteraunt

have a great time

I can't remember, but I believe Rotunda Hospital (the hospital Bono was born in) is in Dublin, as well.

Here is a link to @U2's guide to Dublin. It has lots of stuff that you must see when there... and it's all on a map too!

Dood. I remember this from when I first became a fan, but I had forgotten.

Thank's everyone!

I told my dad I had a list... he wasn't enthusiastic... hmm
I was watching Ireland Rocks tonight and my mom walked into the room and said that if a plane was filled with U2 fans and then we all booked a place full, it would be cheaper. I had no clue she was putting such thought into an Irish trip. She said I should post "you know... online..." to find a U2 travel agent! I found the whole thing quite funny... I guess I can give myself some credit with this converting thing.
