Vicar Street

Holiday Travel Guide

Winner of no less than three major awards for its achievements in live music, Vicar Street in Dublin is the epitome of cool. Opened in 1998, Vicar Street has moved from strength to strength over the years, while retaining the relaxed atmosphere that made it such a success in the first place. This cutting edge music and arts venue lies on Thomas Street at the heart of Dublin.

With a seating capacity of more than 1,000 – and half that number again for standing performances – Vicar Street has crafted itself a reputation as a personal and friendly gig venue. It boasts a broad programme of performances, covering everything from live music to stand-up comedy. Over the years, Vicar Street has hosted huge international names such as Bob Dylan, Lana Del Rey and Paul Simon. It has also hosted a number of musical competitions and fundraising events – usually centring on live music, which forever remains at the heart of the venue’s ethos.

In addition to live gigs, Vicar Street is also a popular Dublin clubbing venue. Of course, it is well equipped for this, with five licensed bars and – as you would hope – a top of the range sound and lighting system.

Situated just south of the River Liffey at the beating heart of the city’s bar and theatre scene, if you’re visiting Dublin, be sure to find a gig at Vicar Street for a truly unforgettable night out on the town.

"The property is in a convenient location. It's easily walkable to many attractions in the center of the city and convenient to the airport. However, there's nothing special about the immediate area. It's mostly fast food and souvenir shops."
