This show is amazing and no recording or youtube video can replace the real live experience. Dancers are so beautiful and talented, they fly on the stage... and the music, the entire setting... we left feeling uplifted for the rest of the evening. The theater is also impressive - too bad they're serving popcorn, which I've never seen in any... More

I saw the fliers for Riverdance while visiting Dublin the first two weeks in August and decided I had to see Riverdance as I'd never seen it and had heard so much about it. I really enjoyed Trad on the Prom in Galway in May 2012 so I figured Riverdance would blow me away. My cousin and I drove all... More

We enjoyed a great performance celebrating 20 years of Riverdance in this grand old theater. The staff were helpful. There wasn't a bad seat in the house.

I saw Riverdance at this beautiful old theatre in downtown Dublin. What a fantastic experience! The show is perfect for anyone looking to enjoy quintessentail Irish folk dance and music. To see it in such a wonderful old theatre,(restored or maintained, I'm not sure), with sculpted detailed ceilings and balconies, is a treasure. My view from a central row h... More

Went to see riverdance. It was excellent. Venue has nice bar, good leg room and not too hot or stuffy- this was from the stalls in row L. Pity they don't allow drinks into auditorium like most theatres, even in plastic glasses. Great experience.

Just went to see " Riverdance" (5 August). Terrific show. Too bad about the American kids in row C (third row from the front) who didn't behave. Perhaps the theatre should set an age limit. The parents would have been better off to hire a babysitter for the night. In a way it is quite egotistical to take young kids... More
