Gaiety Theatre
Holiday Travel Guide

There’s definitely no shortage of things to keep you entertained during a trip to Dublin, and musical theatre is no exception. The Gaiety Theatre in particular is a must for any showbiz fan. Located just south of the River Liffey at the heart of Dublin, this 2,000-seat Victorian theatre is the oldest in the Irish capital and has been entertaining audiences for nearly 150 years.

Since its opening night in 1871, the theatre has kept up a relentless and high quality programme of theatrical and musical productions, from burlesque to stage plays and even opera. Despite numerous refurbishments, the Gaiety Theatre’s Victorian essence remains intact, acting as the perfect complement to the atmospheric buzz of the shows on offer.

While the theatre’s prestigious standing at the heart of the Dublin theatre scene hasn’t wavered since the 19th Century, today it is much more than just a theatre. To counterbalance its more serious programme of performances, the Gaiety branches into family-friendly pantomime at Christmas. And on weekends, it even hosts contemporary club nights.

Whether you come to the Gaiety Theatre for the dancing or for the shows, you’ll no doubt be swept up in the patchwork of love, laughter, fear and heartbreak that has been imprinted on its creaking stage over the decades. Located close to St. Stephen’s Green on South King Street, whatever your plans in Dublin, make sure a trip to the Gaiety Theatre features somewhere on your itinerary.
