The Gaiety


Please note that opening times may vary, in light of the current situation with COVID-19.  For the most up to date information regarding reopening dates and opening hours click here.

The Gaiety Theatre has been part of Dublin’s rich theatrical history for the past 142 years. Whether you prefer musicals, drama, opera, comedy, concerts, pantomimes or festivals, the Gaiety has something enjoyable to offer to everyone.

The Gaiety Theatre has played host to a number of famous faces over the years, including Julie Andrews, Spike Milligan, Joan Rivers and Peter Ustinov. It continues to champion the talents of Irish icons such as The Dubliners and The Chieftains. The theatre underwent a massive transformation in 2003 and again in 2007. During its refurbishment a new stage was fitted, a larger orchestra pit was built, and seating was improved to accommodate larger-scale productions. Now, it is one of Dublin's most loved and popular venues. Since the very first show, burlesque act La Belle Sauvage in 1871, the building is said to have seen more famous faces throughout the years than any other building in Ireland.

 Attire and opening hours:

Formal wear is not required and doors to the theatre open 30 minutes before the performance.

This will give you the opportunity to collect your show tickets beforehand. Admission for latecomers is not guaranteed. Children under two years of age are advised to only attend children’s shows.

Before your show, enjoy a delicious dinner at The Urban Fox Brasserie & Bar. If you are already in the city centre and have some time before the show, you can walk up to the famous Grafton Street to window shop or venture off to St. Stephen’s Green.
