The rock star philanthropist could celebrate anywhere in the world, but there’s a good chance he’s spending the day at his home in Killiney, Ireland, which isn’t a bad place to be at all. The area is basically the Hollywood of Ireland, and Bono is just one of many celebrities who live there.
The gate to Bono’s house itself has become a tourist destination. Visitors write lyrics or messages on the copper gate, in English and many other languages.
Bono loves to celebrate anniversaries and other events in his elaborate mansion in Nice, France. The beachfront home has six bedrooms and a very open feel, a great place to relax and not thing about getting older.

If anyone deserves a cheerful get together with friends, loved ones, and delicious food, it’s Drew. He might celebrate his birthday at his home in Los Angeles. We hope America’s favorite game show host will be able to smile and laugh on his birthday this year.

Bob Dylan is a legendary musician. The talented singer and writer turns 79 on May 24. He’s been on tour much of the last two decades, so it’s anyone’s guess where he’ll actually spend his birthday.
Hopefully he’s scheduled a break in the tour to relax for a few days and celebrate another trip around the sun. He’s lived in the same Malibu residence since 1979, when he bought his home for only $105,000. He has done extensive renovations to the estate, including installing a trampoline, swimming pool, basketball court, and even a small cabin with boat in the yard. These are just the outdoor amenities people can play with if they come over to have cake and ice cream with Bob on his birthday.
This is just a short list of people having a birthday in May, but it’s always fun to see what famous people are up to, and where they might spend their time. Especially on their birthday, when they get to celebrate life and prosperity. Happy Birthday Everyone!
