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 for everyone. The Morgan Hotel is the ideal base for your visit to Dublin if you are looking to attend a show at one of the many theatre venues within the city centre. Head to our Special Offers page to see our full range of packages for staying at The Morgan Hotel.
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. In 2003, the theatre underwent massive refurbishment 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. It is well worth attending a performance for the experience of seeing it in one of Dublin’s most iconic buildings. Since the very first show in 1871 that included burlesque act, La Belle Sauvage, the building is said to have seen more famous faces throughout the years than any other building in Ireland.
Formal wear is not required and doors to the theatre open 30 minutes before the performance, which will give you the opportunity to collect tickets to the show beforehand if you need to, though admission is not guaranteed for latecomers. Children under two years of age are advised to only attend children’s shows. Make sure to visit The Gaiety Theatre's website to see what shows will be on during your stay in Dublin.
