U2 Travelguide » Dublin » The Blue Light Pub


In this rustic pub at the foot of the Dublin mountains Adam was caught taking drugs. During a routine check by police on 06 August 1989 on the pubís parking lot police found 19g of marihuana in Adamís care, and he was charged with possession and suspicion of dealing with cannabis. Though at first arrested, he is only sentenced to a penalty of 25.000 Irish Pounds, payable to a womenís shelter, because the suspicion of dealing cannot be proven. Escaping a prison sentence, Adam is then issued with a visa for the forthcoming tour, which otherwise may have been rejected.




Dublinkarte Nr. 35 | The pub is located in a side street of Sandyford/Stepaside in Dublinís south, about 8-10 miles from the centre. The simplest way there is with the Luas Tram out of the city centre to Sandyford (last stop, takes about 25 minutes). From there take a taxi for the last 3-3.5km to the Blue Light Pub. Though it is pretty far out, now that Dublin has something of a local transport system this comfy pub is welln worth a visit Ė especially with some time to kill (e.g. before a U2 concertÖ).
