The Lambert Puppet Theatre was founded in 1972 by Eugene Lambert and since then has been providing top quality puppet entertainment for children and adults alike. We craft each puppet and set here on our premises and create each puppet adventure that is performed in our purpose-built auditorium.

A month ago my partner and I brought his daughter and it was a really lovely experience. She just lovely every minute and now she keeps doing her own puppet show, it really stimulated her creativity.

Absolutely brilliant! The last time I was here was when I was 7 years old (and that was quite a while ago 😄) so I was delighted to have the chance to go there with my mother and my son. It was fantastic from beginning to end. I would highly recommend going to see one of the shows. I don't... More

In a time of all sorts of computerised technology , this show takes children right back To a time of simple fun and laughter. Oh yes it does !

I must say!it was amazing when I was a kid! But now years and years on visiting as an adult it's still sheer class! This colourful theater is like walking into a wonderland! I am a particular fan of the large round door like something you would see in the hobbit at the entrance! The shows are great with loads... More

I took my little girl and her class to see the show for her birthday. Afterwards Bosco did a little private show... More

This is free seating on benches, all seating on one level but the standard of performances is very high. It really ticks all the boxes for adults and children, it's funny and inexpensive.

Was on "Daddy Duty" this weekend while my wife was away on a girlie weekend. Decided to bring the gang plus a few friends to the Lambert Puppet Theatre. Had read that the theatre had had a fire so was curious to see how the building had been affected. Need not have worried in the slightest. The place looks fabulous... More

My earliest memory of school tours was a trip to the Lambert Puppet Theatre in the 70's !!! I still love going there. It's just the right size for little and not so little people. The shows have been a big hit with my 5 and 2 year old and their older cousins. If you ring ahead and let them... More

Thanks so much for your feedback. For any future birthday boys/girls; Make sure to leave their name at the ticket office when you arrive and Mr. Crow will be happy to give a shout out! Monkstown parking is notoriously tricky, particularly coming up to Christmas. We're lucky that the DART station is only around the corner and free at showtimes!... More

I brought my 5 year old to see Hansel and Gretel in Lambert Puppet theatre this weekend. Having been there myself as a child, it was great to carry on the tradition.
