Die Neuen Windmill Lane Studios

Windmill Lane Recording Studios (earlier Windmill Lane Studios) is an Irish recording studio in existence since 1978. It is currently located in a 3-storey building located at 20 Ringsend Road in Dublin, Ireland. It was originally opened by recording engineer, Brian Masterson, in 1978 on Windmill Lane road (53° 20′ 44.9″ N, 6° 14′ 44.7″ W) and subsequently relocated to its current location on 20 Ringsend Road, Dublin 4 where it still operates as one of Ireland's largest recording studios.

Over the course of its history, it has been used by many notable artists. The original site of the Windmill Lane Studios remained a popular cult symbol for music fans due to the studio's links with the Irish rock group U2; the group's albums to have been fully or partially recorded there include Boy, War, The Joshua Tree, Pop, All That You Can't Leave Behind, and Zooropa. The Wiggles recorded Curoo Curoo with Morgan Crowley and Denise O'Kane at this studio for their Yule Be Wiggling album in 2000 and in 2010, they recorded The Cherry Tree Carol, Ding Dong Merrily on High, We Three Kings, and The Little Drummer Boy with Anúna on for their It's Always Christmas with You! album.
