We enjoyed touring with Adam today. He was knowledgeable, accommodating, and friendly. When I had a question relating to a rumor I had heard about one of the musicians, he went out of his way to get an answer for me right away. We also met the owner on the way out and he too was friendly and easy to chat with (If you see this, the first name I was trying to remember was Daniel Lanois - along with Tony Visconti ;-) It is always a pleasure for us to meet and chat with other rock enthusiasts. It was a one-of-a-kind experience to be able to get up close and personal with some of the spaces and equipment associated with a few of the artists in the soundtrack of our lives. As the museum/venue/studio continues to grow, we would suggest investing a little extra into the sound systems within the tour. We know it must be impeccable in your studios for so many class acts to use them. It would be nice for those on the tour to soak it in with an ambiance that better reflects your expertise. In particular, the music in the U2 room was not able to be played at all due to some obvious technical difficulties and the audio in the video could use a little cleaning up. We look forward to seeing how the museum has changed and grown when we are next in Dublin.

We visited the button factory for their Irish Rock tour, and we both really enjoyed it and were entertained throughout by our extremely rock n roll tour guide, Laura,from Amsterdam, perhaps, I'm trying to remember, but she did the Irish Rock n Roll legacy a Proud turn, thanks for a great tour!

This isnt really a museum, it’s more of a still functioning recording studio/live music venue. Our tour guide was Kenny, and he was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his subject matter! They have a lot of U2 memorabilia there as well as memorabilia from one of my favorite bands, Thin Lizzy. If you got about an hour to spare, I recommend it. If you’re a musician, prepare to bring your chops!
