We saw the 20th anniversary of Riverdance at the Gaiety Theater. The dancing was spectacular. It was like a cross between tap dancing, ballet and modern dance. This was really something special. I wholly recommend it.

Happened to take a break from our shopping and sightseeing outside the Gaiety Theatre. By dumb-luck, it was opening night for Riverdance 20th Anniversary. I went to the ticket counter and found a box for 4 was very reasonable - no other seating for 4 was available. Thoroughly enjoyed the show. The theatre is a gem.

We saw Riverdance in the States and were so excited to get to see it in Dublin. The theater is beautiful. It is smaller than I expected, which was nice. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. The performance was phenomenal.

The Gaeity Theatre is one of Dublin's iconic buildings, and to see and experience a show there is a must if visiting the city. The overall service at the theatre is terrific, with snacks, programs and merchanidse available for visitors. The theatre itself has an old world charm and feel that adds to the overall experience, and to see Riverdance... More

Good acoustics, good seat placement and that old theater charm were enough to convince us that the visit to Gaiety Theatre was no mistake, but the star of the night was definitely the Riverdance! An amazing show in a perfect setting!

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
