The O2 Arena is a 14,000-capacity amphitheatre located at North Wall Quay in the Dublin Docklands. It opened on 16 December 2008. The O2 was built on the site of the former Point Theatre, a smaller music venue which operated from 1988–2007, retaining only some of the outer facade. Its 14,000 capacity makes it the largest indoor arena in Ireland.
In 2011, The O2 was named as the fifth busiest arena in the world with ticket sales of 670,000 putting it behind The O2 London, The Manchester Arena, Antwerp's Sportpaleis and Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena.
Transport to The O2:
Parking: Parking is very limited around the O2 and it is advised that patrons use public transport however there is a few free car parking spaces outside the O2 just along the river. However you would want to get there early to secure your spot. Remember check the parking times that are free.
Dublin Bus: The 151 bus provides a scheduled service that leaves from the city centre and drops you at the venue.
Luas: The Red Line Luas is the most efficient way of getting to the O2 as it drops you off right in the middle of the point village which is where the O2 is located. Remember that the luas get full very quick so it is advised that you get down to the O2 early.
