“The shop area is horrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

I visited this place on a Saturday, on the way back from the Titanic museum. The arena and the W5 was closed, but the food court area (The Pavilion) was open.

Absolutely miserable food choices - a cafe, Pizza Hut, Soda Joe's an Indian restaurant, a bowling alley, and a Tapas restaurant (closed). The Pizza Hut and the Soda Joe's had a surprisingly long line, and the bowling alley offered pretty much burgers, fries and pizza. There is also a very sad looking sports bar.

Also, I don't know if the shops are in a different area, but there were no stores anywhere to be seen.

This was rather disappointing, as the Titanic museum is far from the city center, and The Odyssey was the closest place we knew of to find something to eat. It was just a one day trip from Belfast, and we ended up buying sandwiches at the train station to eat on our way back to Dublin.

“Brilliant Venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

This is a great venue to watch a comedy show, plenty of chain resteraunts, and a couple of independat eateries. Bit more expensive than the city centre, but what do you expect for a tourist destination!

“Great venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Went to see a concert here, I found it to be a great venue and would really recommend it! The sound was great and there is no obstructed viewing. I would love to come back some day and see it being used for an ice hockey match! The only recommendation I would make would be better arrangements for parking as on the nght I arrived there was a long tailback of cars waiting to park

“Great cinema”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

We went last week to one of the many great cinemas in the Odyssey where the seats are very comfortable and the screens very large. The sound systems are awesome and it's a great place to spend an evening
