Windmill Lane Recording Studios – an iconic part of Irish Music

Steeped in history and infused with royalty from some of the biggest names in the music world – Windmill Lane Recording Studios is an iconic place. Originally opened in 1978 – it has been at the heart of recording in Ireland throughout the last 40 years.


So who has used the studio?

It might be easier to say who hasn’t used the studios! U2, Ed Sheeran, Rolling Stones, Lady Gaga, 50 Cent and the Cranberries are just some of the names that have graced this place. An extensive list of artists can be found here. Quite simply, it’s history and pedigree are unrivalled – probably globally.

U2 for example, began originally recording with Windmill Lane. It’s fair to say, that the worlwide phenomenon that is U2’s success…. combined with their spiritual home of Windmill Lane – has put Ireland on the world stage in terms of the music industry.


So what does this mean for you the student?

Quite simply, a unique and truly rare opportunity. While the average Irish student writes essays in the library… you have the chance to hone and master your skills opposite the same piano that David Bowie once played.

To practice and follow in the footsteps of some of the biggest names in music is a truly exciting opportunity. The walls of this place are etched with character. Every corner has a story. Knowing as you practice, the Rolling Stones or Van Morrison also recorded in the same place is an inspiring feeling. Beyond the stardom filled halls – it really is a unique setting.

This 12,000sq foot Art Deco building was originally a power station for the old Dublin tram network but was re-developed to house three different sized recording studios. Each recording studio is meticulously designed and equipped with world-class technology.
