Saw Riverdance here and was impressed. The box office sold us our tickets for the wrong night and when we went and told them they upgraded us to a better area. The inside reminded us of old world charm. Just a short walk from Temple Bar

What a great show so full of energy and in a beautiful old theater in the heart of old Dublin, just a hop away from Temple Bar area. Well worth the time and investment.

I took my 11 year old daughter to see Riverdance @ The Gaiety July 2014, amazing does not describe it. The whole show was beyond brilliant, I've never been to any show/theatrical performance whereby I would estimate that about 98% of the audience gave a standing ovation from the middle of the last dance. The technical/dancing skill/ability of the performers... More

We attended the show on our last night in Ireland. What a grand finale. The performances were absolutely amazing. The musicians were also brilliant. Costumes gorgeous and the girls 'were so pretty'.....

we're a young family and we decided to bring our kids after watching the original show years back. And it was absolutely wonderful, from the performers to the Gaiety itself which is centrally located, just off Stephens Green at the top of Grafton Street - a pedestrianized zone. The lobby is a bit on the small side but we were... More

I recently went to see the river dance show at the gaiety. The performance itself was very good and the dancers and singers excellent, but the theatre was too small for a production like river dance. The show was down sized a lot I thought as I saw the original show many years ago. This type of show needs a... More

where else in the world is as perfect to see Riverdance than its home in Dublin? Though up in the Gods our view was good so we enjoyed the show as well as the ambience.

Went to opening night of Riverdance in late June. The Gaiety Theatre is small and has no lobby to speak of. It is centrally located close to Grafton Street shopping district and restaurants and bars and easy to find. We pre-booked tickets on the internet and it took less than one minute to collect them at the ticket office just... More

I have seen Riverdance here in Dublin twice before, and this latest production is amazing. First, seeing Riverdance in Ireland is so different than watching on PBS or seeing a traveling cast. The performers feed off the audience in the beautiful and vintage Gaiety Theater, and the locals are very supportive! This latest cast is the best I've seen so... More

A lovely old, small theatre near St Stephen's Green. Easy to find theatre, waking past lots of shops to get to it. We were there to see RiverDance, a fantastic show, thoroughly enjoyed, didnt want it to end. We had plenty of leg room & the theatre wasnt too hot for a small theatre.
