The 3Arena, Formerly The O2

county dublinThe O2 is a 14,000-seat concert and events venue (amphitheatre) located at North Wall Quay by the River Liffey, in the Dublin Docklands.

Opened in December 2008 as the the" O2" but now named the "3Arena". It was built on the site of the former Point Theatre - a smaller music venue which operated from 1988-2007 - and retains only some of the outer facade.

Following the closure of the Point Theatre in 2007, the site underwent major redevelopment and a stunning, new, state-of-the-art entertainment venue reborn. This enormous indoor concert space is what Irish music lovers had been waiting for and boasts the kind of world-class acoustics that great music deserves.

A good selection of accommodation can be found within easy reach of the 3Arena and many hotels offers special rates for the nights of concerts and other events. Shuttle bus services are also offered by some of the accommodation providers in the area.
