About Dublin Theatres and Entertainment

(Dublin, Ireland)

Dublin has its fair share of theatres famed for everything from plays that promote Irish culture, contemporary dramatics and experimental performances to classical pieces and pantomime.

The main theatres include the Gaiety, Peacock, Abbey, Tivoli and the Gate theatres. In addition to the larger theatres are many smaller venues that put on more contemporary or experimental performances. Highlights of the year include the Dublin Theatre Festival and the Opera season, when visitors and residents alike can enjoy a vast array of musical and dramatic performances.

This famous Irish city is known for its live music scene, with diverse venues including parks, castles, clubs and pubs playing host to a variety of live music ranging from folk, rock and pop to dance, jazz and blues. There are nightly performances of traditional Irish folk music and dance at venues across the city, with many pubs being well-known for their lively entertainment.

If you fancy something more energetic than a night out at the pub, Dublin offers its fair share of nightclubs, offering everything from R&B to techno. In line with other European cities, expect to be impressed by the size, modernity and possibly price of some of the late night clubs.
