Re: Leonard Cohen In Dublin

Can I suggest to anyone seeking accommodation to use Trivago booking engine
- you'll certainly save €€€€.

There are excellent transport links with Luas tram to O2 ( can take a while
after concert to get access ), plenty of parking nearby,
can reach it walking from city centre.

We shall, no doubt, hook up again somewhere down the road.  G-d willing, w...
