We saw Riverdance here and I bought seats in the dress circle. We were on the front row of that tier with a direct view and we sat next to the aisle (Row A 16-17). These were great seats. I ordered our tickets online and...More

Went to Riverdance with my friends, because when in Ireland... Leg room was fantastic, so much space. Theatre was smaller than I had imagined, but was nice because it was more intimate. Big negative though was the obscured view that I wasn't warned about at...More

The Gaiety theater is lovely. I had seen Riverdance at home years ago BUT this show, the original far surpassed my previous experience. The energy, choreography music and dancers were the best. I believe seeing this in Dublin was the opportunity of a life time....More

What a fantastic performance. Combination of traditional Irish music and tap dance was amazing. Two hours went by quickly.
