We went to see Riverdance while it was in town. The show was great, but the atmosphere of the Gaiety really made it special. Right at the heart of the city; it is a treasure to behold.

We were so excited that this performance was in town while we were so we got to go. My husband says "Riverdance was worth it all." We were all blown away by the music and the dancing.

We happened to stumble across a flyer whilst having supper at a local pub advertising Riverdance. We were only in Dublin for one night and thought we would give it a try and see if we could get tickets an hour before the show was due to start. We walked to the theatre and ask at the ticket office. We... More

Riverdance was everything and more we had hoped it would be. Some new Irish friends said the production made the "hair on the back of their neck stand up"--They were right! What a terrific way to end a delightful stay in Dublin.

I took in the latest production of "Riverdance" and was amazed by the quality-- the dancing, the choreography, the music, the theatrics, all of it!

Very small venue, but so intimate that you could see the performers faces. We were in the dress circle and had to look around people's heads to see the dancer's feet. But there were obstructed view seats next to us which were empty so we were able to move over 1 seat and still see. Wonderful acustics. Got a little... More

We had a lovely evening in the Gaiety watching Riverdance. The theatre is oldly worldly in the centre of Dublin. But it was extremely warm in the theatre. Nice experience.

Such a beautiful theatre and comfortable seats. The production of Riverdance was tremendous. Bar prices were ridiculous and you can't take your drink into the theatre. €2.50 for a tiny soda water which is free or nominal charge at home. I felt like I'd been mugged.
