Visited tonight to see ‘The Verdict’. The staff are so welcoming and pleasant and this makes for a great atmosphere. This was our second visit in recent weeks and was worth travelling a long way for. A wonderful place for a great evening out.

We have now seen two productions here - Othello and A Skull in Connemarra. Both were excellent and we can't wait to visit again. Everything looks really interesting this season. Thoroughly recommended.

Love the coliseum theatre been so many times. I always like to sit in the stalls about three rows back and usually get the seats I want. Easy to book. Pick tickets up on the night. Great night.
