Hi to you all going to Dublin for Leonard.
If your looking for someplace handy to stay and not expensive Citywest hotel is about 20 min away on the luas, (tram) it costs €88 double room, B&B and the rooms are huge, if you want you can also book with Lidlbreaks sometimes getting it cheeper. The luas goes the whole way into dublin city too.
Some hotels have hiked up there prices and we all need to mind our money. :)

Good advice, shelly19. Some of the hotels nearby have certainly done that. Some of the smaller B and Bs did not - but then they are long since booked out, or have only their biggest rooms left. Luckily, someone booking any hotel near the red Luas line to Heuston station will have no trouble getting to Kilmainham.

Have been away with family for the last month, didn't have internet access, and arrived home to discover there's a 4th concert!! Too late for pre-sale of course, but got good tiered seats. We were quite happy with tiered seats in 2008, so hope they're as good this time.
Wow, how lucky we are to have four concerts in Ireland!! :D :D :D
Have any of you Irish got your tickets from Ticketmaster? Mine haven't been sent out yet, I expected to find them here when we got home.
Did I miss anything else? :?: ;-)

My tickets haven't been dispatched yet either. I have no idea how Ticketmaster do it - some people have had their tickets for weeks; others haven't been sent out yet.

Is it alphabetical? Mine have not been sent yet, and I'm near the end of the alphabet. I have bought Ticketmaster tickets for an event in August which haven't arrived yet either. But then, so far - they always arrive eventually, in time! :D

That could be it.... I'm right near the start of the alphabet, and I got mine a while ago.... :D I had thought it was just random, or that overseas ones went first (that wouldn't work, as I'm definitely in Ireland... ;-) ) I suppose that there must be some logic to it, so alphabetical could be it... :shock:

A pleasant surprise to come back to, annmarie. You probably missed a few other concert announcements elsewhere, too, and of course many words of wisdom here on the forum!

No-one should panic re not getting tickets yet, it seems to be as random re dispatch as ever. Got my Friday ones yesterday but no sign of the Tuesday or Wednesday ones ordered many days/weeks earlier. Random as ever!

That's interesting, golo99. My theory about it being alphabetical doesn't hold up so. The workings of Ticketmaster remain mysterious... You'd imagine they would have to have SOME system, otherwise they might forget someone, which luckily doesn't seem to happen!

Remember this night four years ago :?: :?: The Kilmainham magic had just about started :D :D :D
Still no tickets, but I'm sure they'll arrive.
