If you’ll be in Dublin next week for the U2 shows and are looking to enhance your U2 experience, I know you’ve got a lot of choices for what to do, but may I suggest putting these on your itinerary?

1. Visit The Little Museum of Dublin. Take the highly entertaining and informative 20-30 minute guided tour, and then go to the second floor to see the U2 room, which yours truly helps curate.

2. Stop in the gift shop of The Little Museum of Dublin and purchase a copy of the limited, unique, Dublin edition of Cedarwood: A Fairytale of Innocence, the children’s book by German U2 fans Andre Thyret and Melanie Dohle.  This special Dublin edition is in Irish and English, with the Irish translation made by Stephen Newman of Mary Immaculate College, University Of Limerick. It features a cover illustration reminiscent of a certain 2009-era photo shoot by the Irish sea too. Learn more about the book project and its creators here. The Dublin edition is available for purchase online, but next week only it will be for sale in Dublin in only two locations, at the museum and also at … (see #3).

Gig Poster 1.33. Dublin Differently is holding a pay-at-the door U2 Night on Nov. 25 starting at 8 p.m. at Kennedy’s Pub, Westland Row, just minutes from Trinity College. See the poster for more details. Stop in for the fun and say hi to Sean McBride, owner of Dublin Differently and your host for the evening. Andre Thyret will be there too, with copies of the Dublin Edition Cedarwood for sale. Dublin Differently offers popular walking tours of the city year-round, but next week would be a great time to take its U2 Tour.

Safe travels to everyone!
