This theatre is well designed and offers comfortable seating, a good bar and a space for exhibitions. Based on the dance production I saw the standards are very high. I would certainly see other productions there.

Attended part of a tour. Going ok and enjoyable. The cast got to the thrashing the grain scene. They smashed the pillows on the stage. My wife became asthmatic. My eyes become gritty. Maybe that's why the first 3 - 4 rows were empty. We...More

We had seen this on T/a and then our B&B hostess recommended it also. What an enjoyable show. This show had a little of everything, singing, dancing and beautiful story. Loved it!

I’m not really into culture and traditional theatre but I really enjoyed the performance last night. The dancing was wonderful and the story line gave me an insight into country life in Ireland. It’s well worth having a night at the theatre!
