Attraction details
Owner description: Ireland's National Concert Hall is regarded by performing artists as one of the finest concert halls in Europe. At the heart of Dublin's city centre it boasts a thrilling programme of the world's greatest performers and Ireland's finest musicians. With weekly performances by our resident orchestra, the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestras as well as a range of performances and activities covering classical, opera, traditional, jazz, musicals, popular music and education and community outreach, The National Concert Hall is a thriving venue catering for all musical tastes, ranging from the New York Philharmonic to the Chieftains, Cecilia Bartoli to Joan Baez, Lang Lang to Jools Holland and Yo-Yo Ma to Peking Opera, and many more. Our vision for The National Concert Hall is that of a world-leading auditorium and centre of excellence for the performing arts in Ireland. The Hall, on Earlsfort Terrace, is a building worth experiencing on its own merits alone, to say nothing of the exciting performances within it.

We went to a Christmas concert here and the atmosphere was excellent. We noted all seats had a good view of the stage and not so many, as to take away from the ambiance of this beautiful hall. Well worth just to walk in and see some of the memorabilia adorning the walls. A visit to a concert here is like leaving the outside world behind for a couple of hours and escaping to a musical world! Enjoy!

Wonderful music and dance. The venue is really suited to this kind of show as it is smaller than other Dublin theatres. The only downside is the lack of sufficient seating for pre show food. We got some wraps and coffee but couldn't find a seat or any place to leave down our cups.

I've been here so many times I've lost count. It is a beautiful building with a warm feel and great sound at live performances. Eclectic mix of performances which should appeal to all walks of life. The prices are in line with recessionary times and shouldn't break the bank.
