Outstanding production of Brendan Behan's Borstal Boy at the Gaiety. First class performances by all the actors, amazing creative design and direction in Dublin's most beautiful theatre. Well done to all involved, standing ovation well deserved.

We caught a production of Behans Borstal Boy. What better a place to see this than his home town! The theatre is beautiful and it has great acoustics. All in all a wonderful Dublin experience.

A wonderful theater in continuous production since the 1880's. Saw Brendan Behan's play Borstal Boy. Extended production so go see it before it's over. 50th anniversary production.

Having seen Riverdance in Australia in 1996-7 in a large arena we were very lucky to to secure seats here in the Gaiety Theatre. Very intimate and a fabulous show. TIP: Don't fuss too much about your seats - its all very intimate and very comfy seats.

I was fortunate to be in Dublin during the recent 20th Anniversary season of "Riverdance", on at the Gaiety Theatre. Scored a ticket in the front row and loved every minute of it. The theatre is small, but beautifully decorated. Not a very big lobby area at all. The seats were comfortable and the ambience just lovely.

I had a lovely birthday evening at the Gaiety Theater, watching one of the 5 Riverdance performance that took place this summer. I was so so lucky! Loved it - a must see!!!
