Always a great show and wonderful staff who make everyone feel welcome. The show last night "invitation to a journey" transferred from the Galway Arts Festival last week and was world class. Collaboration of a dance company, drama company, a musical ensemble and an entirely brilliant percussionist. A great night.

The thing about the Project is that whatever is happening there is going to be interesting. Maybe you'll love it (as we did the last thing we saw there); maybe you'll hate it (as we have sometimes in the past), but the work is always authentic, always intriguing, always fresh.

Nice seating - bench type. Good views and sounds, even from the highest seats. Bar facilities there, with a preorder system for the interval. Staff member wasn't exactly friendly, but gave me my tickets in an efficient manner. No etickets and no assigned seating. We were almost last to our seats, after a drink at the bar, and still had...

Excellent multi-purpose arts venue on the edge of Temple Bar. Saw three excellent productions at the Dublin Fringe Festival. Very helpful staff, excellent bar/café upstairs. All-in-all an awesome place.

One of the best spots for seeing high quality international art in Dublin. Sometimes a little dry but generally great curation. Totally recommend.

When I'm in town I try to see a show here. I saw the holiday Pantone around Christmas, which was really fun. The bar is also great. I actually had an alcoholic ginger beer that is never seen before and it was amazing. It's also just cool to be around the arts community here in Dublin.
