Riverdance, great show

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.

Treated myself to the production of Riverdance on my last night in Dublin. Walked up to the box office a couple of hours before the show and was able to get a fairly good seat. The staff were very helpful, and the theatre itself is a lovely sight. I had a great view, and it seemed that all seats had... More

The place is very nice. Superb decoration. Sounds and acoustics flawless. But please leave just 3cm more between rows because it is too narrow and my legs still hurt three days after.

Lovely old theatre. A delight to look at even before the show starts. The summer season of Riverdance is a must if you are in Dublin. the current show is different again from the earlier incarnations and has some delightful comic interliudes as well as music and song

What a show, truly amazing, one of the best shows we have ever seen. The dancers and musicians were fantastic. If you are going to Dublin then you must see this show. The Theatre itself is lovely, and we found the seating comfortable. If we could see this show again we would.

Riverdance 21 - stunning, unique. The Theater is perfect for the event. The cast is so professional and the show is unforgetable.

The Riverdance show was amazing. The athleticism and skill of the dancers was stunning especially the Russian dance segment. The musicians were excellent and real showmen particularly the young fiddler and the drummer who was a commanding presence. The Gaiety is a little gem and full of atmosphere. Though doors open at 6.30 you can only get into the theatre... More

Riverdance is a show not to be missed for anyone's first time in Ireland! The show is spectacular and has you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. Seats on the first balcony still have a great view and the show does not matter where you are seated for the same effect.
