1978 – 1990
With the desire to create a world class recording studio in Ireland, recording engineer and producer Brian Masterson opened the doors of Windmill Lane Recording Studios in Dublin in 1978. Ten years later, Windmill Lane Recording Studios was voted the best recording studio in the world by legendary American based magazine, ‘Recording Engineer / Producer’. The original studio buildings were famously covered in graffiti by U2 fans that visited from all over the world but were demolished in 2016.
1990 – Present
In 1988 the Studios relocated to it’s current home on Ringsend Road. This 12,000sq foot 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. In 2005 Van Morrison purchased the studios for his own personal use and in 2009 Pulse College became the new owners and reopened the studios for commercial use. Artists such as Lady Gaga, Hozier, Elle Goulding and Ed Sheeran have all recorded here in recent years. Click here for full client list.
