An excellent show with professional dancers and singers. Music from Irving Berlin, Cole Porter and the roaring twenties. Don't get a seat on the end of rows around I,J as you cannot fully see all of the stage with overhang from the balcony above. This should be explained when buying your tickets. Otherwise this is really a show worth seeing... More

We recently attended a performance here of An Inspector Calls. We paid premium prices for our tickets but our view was obstructed. Portions of the play take place stage left and the view was partially obstructed by the second level. Be sure you know the seating plan. We were told these were premium seats and we paid a price for... More

I made the big mistake of booking tickets for a play and spent the whole time getting up out of my seat for people for go to the bathroom, checking phones and moving around. Not one staff member to be seen either, even after the play to say something about this. I barely saw anything and the acoustics in the... More

Enjoyed watching Riverdance in their home town . The theatre created a great atmosphere to the show. Décor was great and the views were great. Time to migrate in and at the end out was to a minimum well done. Like all theatres there seemed to be lots of stairs, however at the top there was a bar and refreshments... More

I went to Europe solo this summer. A friend recommended I go see Riverdance while I was in Dublin. Although it appeared that in Europe they don't dress up for shows like this as we do in Canada, the show it was was absolutely amazing. I definitely recommend this show!!

As a lover of the film with Meryl Streep, I found the play to be equally as good & entertaining. The grown up Michael was brilliant! Maggie was perfectly cast – she really shone during the play! Very well done. Gaiety please take note: 1) There was no reminder for people to switch off mobiles – ringing & buzzing could... More

I planned on seeing a showing of Dancing at Lughansa here, but was told the tickets I had paid for were not available. The staff was rude to me and accused me of trying to get free tickets, even through I showed them my purchase information. I will not be returning to this theatre.
