Really great opera house! The bar is especially great because you can order your drinks at the start and they are sitting ready for you at the interval! No queuing!

Great place to watch a show, pantomime or other. Watched the panto at Christmas from one of the boxes. Took my daughter to see Scooby doo! It was fantastic. Missed Dirty Dancing but watching out for what else is coming up. Would recommend this lovely venue. Have a drink and nibbles in the newly part of the Opera House, but... More

The Grand Opera House isn't so grand. It has been situated in Belfast for many years and is looking tired and worn. Could do with a good makeover to restore it to its former glory.

Took our daughters to see Angelina Ballerina. They absolutely loved it. What a fantastic show. We sat in the grand circle. Great seats.

Every time I've been here it's been fantastic. Great venue and location. Plenty of parking nearby ( just google beforehand so you know where to park) Plenty of places for dinner nearby too or you can eat here. Helpful staff and very clean building

Had the opportunity to see Dirty Dancing while in Belfast on a short visit. The Opera house was very impressive. Only complaint would be that able bodied people were using the disabled facilities. Would not have noticed other than seeing a very disabled lady struggling to use the facilities due to able bodied people queueing

I always relish a night out at the Opera House. The décor, the design of the theatre and the ambience always add to the enjoyment of the show. 'Dirty Dancing' in August was excellent. We were on our feet clapping and cheering for Johnny and 'Baby'. Staff are always pleasant and courteous.

Belfast's Grand Opera House is a fantastic Arts venue in the city centre. There are 2 distinct parts to the building; the original theatre which is maintained in its original glory from when it first opened in 1895 and a modern extension was opened in 2006. Not everyone likes the merging of old and new architecture, however I personally feel... More

Over the years I have played the Grand Opera House several times. The theatre is beautiful and the staff and audiences are wonderful. I have many happy memories of the Grand Opera House and of Belfast.
