The Olympia was a great place to see a show. We were there this past week for Once. It's a well maintained old theatre. Beautiful interior. Comfortable seating. Plenty of restrooms for patrons and easy to get a drink before the show and at intermission.

The Olympia is my favourite venue in Dublin to see a concert at. I how the intimacy of this venue! A lot of artists seem to enjoy the intimacy too.
