About Windmill Lane Studios:
Windmill Lane Recording Studios, widely referred to as the ‘U2 studio’, is a three-storey music recording studio located on Ringsend Rd., Dublin, Ireland and has been at the heart of the Irish recording industry for almost 40 years.
It was once located on Windmill Lane, a small street just south of City Quay and the River Liffey, which has now become famous for the graffiti tributes that adorn the building. The studios were originally opened by Brian Masterson in 1978, who was the company director and head engineer, and were used to record traditional music.
