'The 3Arena', Dublin
Opened in December 2008 as "The O2" is a 14,000-seat concert and events venue located at North Wall Quay by the River Liffey, in the Dublin Docklands. It's now "The 3Arena".
Built on the site of the former Point Theatre - a smaller music venue which operated from 1988-2007. Following the closure of the Point Theatre in 2007, the site underwent major redevelopment and a stunning, new, state-of-the-art entertainment venue was reborn and rebranded. This enormous indoor concert space boasts the kind of world-class acoustics that great music deserves and is what Irish music lovers have been waiting for.
A good selection of accommodation can be found within easy reach and many hotels offers special rates for the nights of concerts and other events. Shuttle bus services are also offered by some of the accommodation providers in the area.
