All you musicians/wannabe rock stars/equipment geeks out there may be interested to know that your idea of Heaven has just opened in Dublin.

It's called X Music, and is the biggest musical equipment retail outlet that Ireland has ever seen.

The store, which is situated at the Red Cow Retail Park (just behind the Red Cow Hotel) on the Naas Road, is a "20,000 square foot, three floor, high-spec equipment buff's paradise", and the first of its kind in Ireland.

The unit also includes a comprehensive drum department, a floor dedicated solely to guitars, a studio room, a stage for gear demos/instore gigs, a coffee area, and Ireland's first 'Planet Roland'.

More info (including price lists) can be found (soon) at the official site,
