The Gaiety Theatre, Dublin Reviews

  • The Riverdance VIP experience was great-you meet the stars of the show, get to watch them warm up, see some original & current costumes & use the private bar. Darren, who dances in the dance troupe, is your guide for the evening-a really bubbly positive guy, who loves what he does! There should be a little more detail about the VIP tickets, on the website & on the printed tickets, as 6 tourists, out of our group of 13 VIP ticket holders, arrived an hour late, a real pity for them.

  • One of the two "old school Theatres in Dublin. Great location just off Grafton Street. We went to see the Mozart Opera "The Marriage of Figaro" which was most enjoyable. However, it was uncomfortably warm in the first half, partly due to the unseasonably warm weather. After the interval, ventilation improved. Also, the bar on the first floor is far too small for the number of people trying to use it. And the queues for the toilets were spectacular. Sound was clear, and even though we were seated towards the back of the first floor balcony, we had a good view of the stage.

  • Best theatre I was ever in. Super seating. Let it be was a fantastic show. The theatre staff were lovely

  • Lovely theatre in the city centre - one of the old-fashioned one (it opened in 1871). Perfect place to go see a ballet - be it Riverdance, or the Nut Cracker - or small production plays.

  • Nice theatre, friendly staff. We enjoyed the show, despite the obstructed view. Snacks were pricey and limited.
