“A pleasant evening's entertainment.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Sean O'Callaghan sang in the Ballroom on Christmas Eve and played music for dancing. The entertainment was free for hotel residents, but I don't know if there was a charge for non-residents.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

I recently saw Brian Kennedy in the Acoustic room at the INEC.It was an outstanding night.Brian Kennedy was fantastic and the venue was so intimate.The room had several small tables with candles on and the atmosphere was so cosy.Sound quality and lighting were excellent.I will definately go back again.

“No atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

I felt there was too much emphasis on getting punters to Drink. tokens for Free pints after the concert were handed out.
The concert was 40 mins late, support act first ,then a break after only 30 mins , then the main act at 9.30 ish. By this time lots of drinks consumed ,also drink(not glass) allowed in the venue......subsequently, there was a stream of people going to the toilet the whole time the act(comedian) was on . i found this very irritating, and the comedian was constantly losing his "flow". Maybe this wasn't the fault of the INEC , but i have never experienced this before at a concert. Our seats were very good(Green D 7&8).But overall it gave the impression of "grubby".
Staff were pleasant and helpful.But , I'll stick to the O2 Dublin
