Reviewed December 13, 2013

Visited Wexford recently for a David Gray Concert (9th December 2013), The acoustics, surroundings and the atmosphere this venue creates are magical. With the exception of the Royal Albert Hall, I have not experienced such a perfect venue for a concert, small intimate and yet utterly stunning. We had the two seats centre back row at the top and everything was clear and visible, every note reverberated around the walls. magical.

Didn't get to any performances unfortunately but visited the cafe, the view is amazing, food was lovely and the ambiance of the whole place makes you want to come back. Toilets a bit difficult to find.

I saw two opera's this year during the 2014 festival - one performance I sat on the last row right at the back with my son and the other only 3 rows from the front - both were a fabulous experience - the acoustics are second to none. At the back you could read the surtitles quite comfortably whilst at the front you couldn't really but it didn't really matter as you were so close you got engrossed in the performance. Stalls and face-on seats are advisable at this venue as side seats can be a little uncomfortable on a long performance.

Lovely theatre with excellent viewing and comfortable seats .A very impressive building . Slightly lacks the atmosphere of the original 19 century building , which was quite unique ! However the performance (of Cristina Regina di Svezia ) was superb .
