Went to Riverdance here and it was excellent. It was about a year ago at this stage. Seats on the ground floor section were good, not sure about the others as I didn't sit there before.

After an excellent pint of Murphys we were called in as the performance was about to start. And boy did it start. I was transfixed from the first moment. Excellent drama with lots of updated moments. The acting was excellent. The set fabulous. Enjoy

What a performance and what a theatre! A lovely theatre retaining all its history which surrounds you. A great place to watch an amazing drama played out by great actors. If you are in the stalls aisle seats on right of stage you will have an obstructed view of the stage and will miss a crucial part of the play.... More

My husband and I went to see "Educating Rita" here last Saturday evening and we had a wonderful time. The play was fantastic...so funny. The theatre retains it's old charm but with modern comfort. The staff were professional and courteous. I'd recommend you find a play you like and see it here.

We saw "Educating Rita" which has been touring Ireland. There were only two characters but it was a great play! The theatre is a beautiful example of Edwardian architecture.

This is a stunning old fashioned theatre. Its had a revamp since I was last there a couple of years ago but its been done sensitive to the age of the building.

Situated just off Grafton Street Gaiety Theatre is different from modern arenas. I really enjoyed to be there.

Great performance. Lives up to the reviews. 4 characters in a rural Irish pub telling stories, enjoying a few pints and short ones. Very Irish. Great performances from all the actors. They kept the performance going for an hour and 40 mins with no interval. Didn't feel that long! Was immersed in the story. Didn't want it to end...want to... More
