Great theatre!

We visited for Riverdance, and were charmed by this lovely and historical theatre. Make sure to attend if you get the chance!

My wife has waited years to go and see the live show and she always wanted to see it at the Gaiety in Dublin. So for her 50th I took her to Dublin for the weekend to see the show at the home of Riverdance and where it all started. What a great show still after all this time and... More

We were able to catch some last minute tickets to see River Dance 20 and it was amazing!!!! What a treat to catch it in its home town where it all began! Gaiety Theatre is located in a really convenient area where many attractions and fine shopping take place. The inside has a cozy, but very professional setting that is... More

RIVERDANCE was born in Dublin and the best place to see the show is in The Gaiety Theatre, Dublin. It's a great venue, especially if you are in the best seats, to see the dancers close up and appreciate the pure quality of the dancing. The Gaiety itself is small and intimate and the audience really "get into it" -... More

The theatre has been refurbished in the last 10 years and as a result is a truly unique experience, especially if you're going to watch Riverdance. We were fortunate enough to see a Sunday evening show from its 20th Anniversary run, and having seen it before, it still commands your full attention throughout. The cast are brilliantly talented and overall... More

Went to see Riverdance20. Lovely theatre. GREAT show. Tip- Sinnotts Sports Bar across the street has a better range of drinks available for half the price

Small, cosy, intimate ... yes ... all those reviews are correct and there are many theatres around the world that would put the Gaiety to shame. However, having seen Michael Flatley perform in 'Lord of the Dance' and 'Celtic Tiger' in Glasgow, which were amazing shows, there is something so special about seeing 'Riverdance' in Dublin and the Gaiety was...

Bit of a pokey theatre. I got seats on the front row of parterre thinking they would be good seats, but they were too close to the stage. the best view would have been the front row of the lower circle. I was also surprised that they didn't sell Guinness in the bar, only Murphy's.
