Guns N’ Roses guitarist pays visit to Dublin music shop – seeing the city’s sights
The music shop was not the only spot the guitarist visited during his time in the city. Instead, he made the most of his time in the Irish capital by checking out the spots.
He was spotted seeing the sights with his girlfriend, Meegan Hodges, at the historic Malahide Castle and Gardens in north County Dublin. Hodges posted photos to social media of the pair exploring the castle as well as their time at the market in Herbert Park.
We’re glad to see the pair had the chance to see the sights of the city ahead of the highly-anticipated concert.
