Owner description: Odyssey Arena opened in December 2000 as part of Northern Ireland's landmark Millennium project. The Arena is owned by the Odyssey Trust Company and operated by SMG. This world-class arena can stage a number of sporting events with an Olympic sized Ice pad and is home to the Belfast Giants professional Ice Hockey team. With a 200m hydraulically built athletics track built around the ice pad, Odyssey Arena can host indoor athletics events. Other sports include Basketball, Boxing, Arenacross, Darts and wrestling. Not only providing a multitude of sports, the Arena can attract international stars from the world of pop, rock, hip-hop and classical music. Artists include Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, Rod Stewart, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Kings of Leon, The Killers, Rihanna and Beyonce to name but a few. The Arena has seating capacities from 2,500 for an intimate theatre format up to as much as 10,800 for full concert setting. Another string to the bow is the Arena's capacity to host a number of conferences and exhibitions. With over 3700m² pillar free floor space and a 22m free ceiling height, along with a registration area in the front foyer many exhibitions have proved a great success. With the addition of comedy shows and family shows such as Disney On Ice and musical/dance shows such as Riverdance, the Odyssey Arena can provide a plethora of entertainment and enjoyment to the people of Northern Ireland and beyond! Odyssey Arena provides an outstanding location for first class Corporate Hospitality to businesses in Northern Ireland. The Arena possesses 24 Corporate Hospitality suites comprising of 20 x 12 seated suites and 4 x 28 seated suites along with a 64 seated luxury lounge facility.

This is a great venue with plenty to see and do at the arena before an event, food court and entertainment, cinema and W5, and now the street cafe is open late on concert nights! About time lol. Coach parking directly outside arena, very accessible and great layout inside. One downside is the car parking which takes a while to... More

Easy to get at from city centre. Good venue although drinks/refreshments could have been better priced as were quite expensive.

Visited the Odyssey to see Michael Buble's Belfast concert. I thought the venue was very good. Comfortable, good acoustics and easy to access and egress. What more to you need from a venue?

This is the worst venue for entertainment I have ever visited. The location is very poorly chosen as it does not allow for any humane car parking. What with shortage of spaces and abysmal entry and exit planning, you could be waiting until doomsday to get organized. Once inside, it is a rip-off from start to finish. The customer is... More

For an orchestral feast this venue is less than appropriate. Many mature couples attended this event. Naively entering the Odyssey early hoping to get a bite to eat and then to move at their own convenience to the event. Not so, once your in its the point of no return! To make matters worse if you do want to eat... More

Excellent rink side seats for the show. Arena great, excellent atmosphere. Lots of merchandise on sale, but show was well worth it. Parking was a nightmare, due to Queens Island entrance being closed. Plenty of spaces, just stupid unnecessary queue to get to them.

Attended Disney On Ice here at the weekend. Facilities excellent. Parking really very reasonable. We actually left our car in the car park and got a taxi to city centre to shop after the show.
