Opened by Brian Masterson and James Morris in 1978, the studios were originally located on Windmill Lane, where the buildings came to be known for the graffiti painted on them by U2 fans from all over the world.
From rock to rap, from AC/DC to 50 Cent, global superstars as well as local breakouts come to record at what we’ve built into the premier audio production house in Ireland and one of the most renowned in the world. Housed today in an iconic Art Deco building on Ringsend Road, the studio stands out as much for what you will discover inside. Comprising three state-of-the-art recording studios, our largest studio can accommodate an 80-piece orchestra.
The tour presents visitors with an intimate opportunity to understand the creation and production of the most iconic songs and albums by some of the most influential bands and artists of the past 40 years.
Please note, Windmill Lane Recording Studios is not a walk-in visitor centre or museum. It is a busy, working recording studio where client privacy is paramount. Book in advance in order to avoid disappointment.
