River Dance excellent but full price paid for partial view of stage

With respect to the selection of seats, be careful to avoid the outer isle which sell at full price (55 €) but offer only partial view of the stage. A real ripoff! I have never... read more

With respect to the selection of seats, be careful to avoid the outer isle which sell at full price (55 €) but offer only partial view of the stage. A real ripoff! I have never seen such a practice anywhere else during my travels. With respect to the show River Dance, it is a very good show. The second half... More

While visiting Dublin, my family and I went to the Gaiety Theatre to see Riverdance! The show was excellent and the theatre was beautiful, clean, and the staff were extremely helpful getting us in and helping us find our seats!

The Gaiety is such a beautiful theatre in such a perfect location! In the centre of Dublin, I'd much rather travel over to Ireland to watch a show here than stay in London! Seeing Riverdance in the heart of Dublin was such an amazing experience! Definitely a must see show if you're in the area!

I love classics and this is one. We saw a wonderful production of "The Field" which presents classic Irish themes, but the play is much more recent than the theatre. I am sure that modern theatres are better than old ones, but who cares. The Gaiety is a wonderful throwback and a wonderful part of the Dublin experience. Buy your... More

I'm American, and don't often think of going to the theater when in Dublin, but recently attended a play at the Gaiety Theatre and found it to be like London in the 1970s or so. The trappings, the crowd, the bar at intermission, the play all seemed like a step back when going to the theater was every bit as... More

This is a beautifully restored theater located just off of Grafton Street. Also very close to St. Stephens Green. Saw great production of The Field. Great professional theater at good value.

Excellent show. Saw this john B Keane play done many times before but this performance excelled in drama and a different ending to what we previously knew. The total comfort and sound quality in an old world setting made it a night not to forget. Show ends this week so hurry and get tickets!

The Gaiety is a Dublin institution and a wonderful place to see a show. We went to see John B Keane's The Field. The play itself was tragically funny. The cast and set were brilliant. The theatre itself is charming inside. The theatre adds to the atmosphere. It feels very intimate. I cant wait to go back to another show.
