Found this remodeled theatre close to our hotel. Was pleasantly surprised to find Riverdance 20 show. We booked tickets for the same evening, with parterre (main floor) in row K. Great seats, except I'd move closer to the center. Manager needs to purchase a spot light in the aisle that does not glare on those sitting on the right side... More

We had fantastic tickets to Riverdance yesterday in Row E of the Parterre. Ticket prices are very reasonable compared to a similar show in London. We had been looking forward to the show, having been fans of Riverdance for many years. It totally lived up to expectations - thoroughly enjoyed by our ten year old and teenagers too. The Gaiety...

The theater is exquisitely decorated on the inside, and features a very nice bar in which you can wait for the doors to open. We saw Riverdance there with the summer crowd; you do not need to dress too formally or observe the most formal etiquette for this show--it's pretty casual.

This small, comfortable theater was easy to book while we were in Dublin. We saw Riverdance the evening of our arrival in Dublin. The hotel let us use their lobby computer and we picked up the tickets at the box office two hours before the show. The theater is near St. Stephen's Green shopping center, so you can shop and...

What a show fantastic. To deal with the staff at the Gaiety was a pleasure. I was going to book with ticket master but it saved 17 euro by booking direct at the Gaiety box office. The show was breathtaking . My 18 year old daughter went with her 17 year old cousin and a french student they were in... More

Cute, small, old looking theatre on grafton street, right in the heart of touristville, Dublin. It's nice how small it is because that means that every seat is a good seat. I bought a ticket for river dance an hour before the show started. Unfortunately there was no discounted or cheap last minute tickets. So I paid 50 euro for... More

Family and I have been attending this theatre for 60+ years. Was given the wrong tickets by the box office staff and when I queried this I was told the tickets were correct. There were not. Staff on the night we ok but ended up in inferior seats and when I wrote to complain, I was ignored. I really would... More

Went to see Riverdance 20 in this lovely old Theatre - the first thing that struck us was the bar! - very well priced, light and airy and big. The theatre itself was a lovely small one, the show was absolutely fantastic and we were so close we could see all the expressions on the dancers faces. Would return (the... More
