If you like theatre – or even if you don't but want a Lifetime Experience: John B. Keane's brilliant The Field is still playing at The Gaiety Theatre. You might never again look at 'the green fields of Ireland' (or even the grass back home in your own back yard) the same way(s). Your best bet is to just show... More

Went to see The Field during a recent visit to Dublin. Two different shows were recommended to us by some locals so we selected this one because it was fairly close to our hotel. I have to add that they indicated that this show was the more "touristy" of the 2 recommendations, but we didn't find anything really "touristy" about... More

Saw " the field" here. Very good play and some excellent performances. Well worth seeing. The seating in the gaiety is a bit tight but overall it's quite a nice theatre.

Lovely evening. Went to see the field. Lovely staff, good bar service and great show. We were really entertained on a cold wet Saturday evening. We arrived a little late but we got to our seats with out delay.

Went to see John B. Keane's Moll recently. We had fantastic seats and a superb view of the stage. Staff were wonderful and we then popped into the hairy lemon nearby for a late dinner

I have been to countless pantos here over the years, I would even say it is the better panto here in Dublin as opposed to the other one over at the Olympia. To be honest, I haven't seen anything else here, must have a look at the listings!! Anyway, was strolling past the other day and took a pic and... More

Attended the Rat Pack in The Gaiety Theatre last Saturday night. Place was jammed with tourists all attending this fabulous show. We went into the bar for interval drinks as we arrived to late to order some in advance. We went to the bar where there was a slight dip in the floor resulting in me tripping through the service...

On 10 March 2015 I made my first visit in about five years to the Gaiety Theatre in Dublin. I look forward to enjoying stage productions in a variety of settings and Dublin is the prime location for quantity and quality of dramatic offerings. The production this night was the latest play from celebrated playwright Martin McDonagh, "Pillowman." The show... More

The Gaiety Theatre is a fine old venue and has played host to countless wonderful nights of entertainment. Martin McDonagh's latest offering, 'The Pillowman', currently running on South King Street, is not one of them. The theatre luvvies may well love it. It seems they indeed do - Tony Awards across the pond, positive reviews in the Irish Times today... More
