Have been to two shows here. Excellent productions both times. Friendly staff and very helpful. Great thing to add to a busy Dublin visit to enjoy and relax in the evening.

Though it is a historic building the seats were very comfortable. I saw Private Lives. Sets well done, acoustics good, and enjoyable evening. They have pay parking. Also have a nice bar.
