We came to Dublin during some rainy days and so the very nice Gaiety theatre was an option. It was a great show of Riverdance we saw. But I never seen such small seats with nearly no space to the row in front of you. We booked places in the upper area 2nd row for 50? and therfore a would expect a little space.

The sky bar at the upper area is also very nice.

Next time I go there I'll book one of the booths where you have enough place and also an excellent view.

Just saw Riverdance. It was an amazing show. Very nice theatre. The only negative was our sears had a slightly obstructed view due to the saftey bars. We were in the balcony. Choose seating in the middle of the rows to avoid this.

We travelled to Dublin, from Yorkshire, especially to watch Riverdance in it's home town - what an experience. The show was amazing and a credit to all taking part. There was something for everyone - the singing, the story telling, the instruments and of course the amazing dancing I was absolutely spellbound. We were sitting five rows from the front and could see everything even down to the expressions on the performers faces and what struck me was how happy they looked and their eye contact with each other which obviously helped them in their routines.This show has leapfrogged others I have seen and will certainly be up there in my top 5 - a brilliant experience and thanks to everyone for making this so.

We had pre booked to see a show before we traveled. This is a very attractive old style theater. The Riverdance show we saw was just Brilliant!

Very surprised at how small this theatre was and thus obviously so was the stage which when watching Riverdance took away a little bit from the overall experience.
The show was pretty good though. Highly climactic in parts but surprisingly as enjoyable are the violin solos and some of the vocals. The percussionist too is fantastic. Not sure the overall production was anywhere near it's past West End and Broadway equivalent but a highly enjoyable experience nonetheless.
