Ireland has long enjoyed a special relationship with live music. That's why, as part of a special feature, we're celebrating the venues that provide a crucial platform for Irish and international acts to share their music with gig-goers right across the country. To kick things off, we're heading to Dublin's 3Arena...
North Wall Quay, Dublin 1
Tel: (01) 819 8888
Regularly ranked among the top 10 busiest venues in the world, 3Arena is a testament to Dublin’s insatiable appetite for big gigs. This is where legendary rock acts and superstar pop artists come to strut their stuff. Once the old Point Depot, today it’s an ultra–modern facility with world–class acoustics in the reinvigorated Docklands. Launched in 2008, we still marvel at how it can host a truly immersive show while being an arena-sized venue – and there’s literally not a bad seat in the house.
