Thank you for your comments. We're sorry that you weren't able to take an image when you were at the shows. This is something that the acts request unfortunately and nothing we have any control over. We try to programme events to suit all tastes in every season. Hopefully there will be something of interest in forthcoming programmes. I will... More

It seems to be that the Forum mainly caters for irish patrons, there are a lot of other nationalities that would enjoy going to the theatre, so some alternative shows would be good.

We booked in for a meal before going to the Tommy Tiernan show, it was valentines night so were treated to a choice of red, white wine or prosecco. A little amuse bouche cup of tasty tomato red pepper soup arrived too. Starters lovely and monkfish main presented beautifully with taste to match. Service attentive and friendly. Brilliant value £20... More

There is a restaurant within in the forum which is amazing. at the interval of the show we went back to our table which was neatly laid out with plenty of crackers, cheese wine and our desserts, which we enjoyed thoroughly, a great place for all...

I went with a group of people to see the Millennium Forum's retelling of Peter Pan. It was hilarious! The actors were fantastic and the costumes and sets were impressive for such a little venue. You will most certainly get a good show here.
