The 3 Arena, previously known as the point depot, is a state-of-the-art music and event venue in the heart of the Dublin Docklands. The venue was opened in 2008 and has hosted many big acts from both the music and entertainment world, including Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Guns & Roses, Celine Dion, Cirque du Soleil, Russel Brand and Jack Whitehall. There is a full working bar and a number of food stalls for attendees to have a drink and a quick snack while absorbing the electric atmosphere.
The 3 arena has an impressive capacity of 13,000 people with a choice of sitting or standing depending on the show that is taking place. There is a constant high demand to play there so you can guarantee that one of your favorite performers will have a show there at some stage. Be careful though, the shows can sell out in minutes, so you need to act fast to secure a ticket.
It is located on north wall quay and can be accessed by Luas, Dublin Bikes, multiple Dublin bus routes including the 53, 53A and 151, and it is within walking distance of just 20 minutes from Maldron Hotel Pearse Street, making it an ideal place to stay.
