Overview

Pavilion Theatre is located in Dún Laoghaire, a picturesque seaside town situated just 13 km south-east of Dublin city centre. A short DART ride from town, you’ll find us in the midst of a bustling social and commercial hub nestled between the Wicklow Mountains and Dublin Bay. Our programme covers a huge range of events with theatre, music, comedy, dance, literary, talks and family shows all well represented. Home to dozens of bars and restaurants to suit any taste, Dún Laoghaire is the perfect setting for a day or evening’s entertainment. Catch a show after a stroll down the pier or relax with a pre-show drink and a harbour view. Pavilion Theatre is supported by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and The Arts Council of Ireland.
