Brian Masterson & James Morris opened the doors of Windmill Lane Studios in Dublin in 1978. The original studio buildings were famously covered in graffiti by U2 fans that visited from all over the world. In 1990 the Studios relocated to its current home in the Dublin Docklands. This 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. Artists such as Kylie Minogue, Ann-Marie, Ed Sheeran and Westlife have all recorded here in recent years.
