I loved my visit to the Gaiety Theatre. Inside the decoration is traditional and sympathetic to the time it was built (Victorian) it feels smart, elegant even and inviting. No refurbishment needed here. I enjoyed the gold curtain trim and the ice cream for sale at half time. Everything is cosy and well kept. The leg room is not great... More

We went to the Gaiety to see Riverdance which we had never seen before. The theater itself is a Victorian decor. Seating was very comfortable, altho leg room wasn't great. I saw people changing seats once all were seated. Men were trying to sit on the aisle where they could put their legs out. We were told that "there isn't... More

The home of Riverdance, this venue makes for a comfortable, elegant experience. The bar is a good size for pre-show and interval drinks.

I've wanted to see Riverdance for several years now in the states but the good seat tickets were always so expensive. So we decided to see it while visiting Dublin. It was even better than I imagined it would be! Music was just like on the CD I have, but the dancing was spectacular. Do not sit in the front... More

Do yourself a favour and go and see river dance I wish I had thought to see it earlier. Having a family member visit creates reasons to do all sorts of things and watching river dance is one of those things really really enjoyed it. What a great performance. First time to visit this theatre also a lovely grand theatre.... More

We saw Riverdance in this beautiful theatre - the ceiling chandelier is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen in a theatre. The ambience was quite intimate and cosy but once the show started the energy levels rose rapidly! The show was absolutely amazing and I feel sure those dancers must have problems with their ankles after they... More

We thought while in Dublin one should see Riverdance. We bought tickets to a Saturday matinee in advance but need not have bothered as there were plenty of seats all around. Also the theatre is quite small so if you are on a budget then likely you'll get a good seat anywhere. Strangely one can get popcorn there and the... More

The performers were incredibly talented both for dancers and vocalists. Centrally located and no hassle ticket purchase and seating. Historic site was a big plus for us during our "Bloomsday" trip to Dublin for it's James Joyce connection.
