Owner description: The SSE Arena, Belfast opened in December 2000 as part of Northern Ireland's landmark Millennium project. This world-class arena can stage a number of sporting events with an Olympic sized Ice pad and is home to the Belfast Giants professional Ice Hockey team. With a 200m hydraulically built athletics track built around the ice pad, we can host indoor athletics events. Other sports include Basketball, Boxing, Arenacross, Darts and wrestling. Not only providing a multitude of sports, the Arena can attract international stars from the world of pop, rock, hip-hop and classical music. Artists include Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, Rod Stewart, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Kings of Leon, The Killers, Rihanna and Beyonce to name but a few. The Arena has seating capacities from 2,500 for an intimate theatre format up to as much as 10,800 for full concert setting. Another string to the bow is the Arena's capacity to host a number of conferences and exhibitions. With over 3700m² pillar free floor space and a 22m free ceiling height, along with a registration area in the front foyer many exhibitions have proved a great success. With the addition of comedy shows and family shows such as Disney On Ice and musical/dance shows such as Riverdance, we can provide a plethora of entertainment and enjoyment to the people of Northern Ireland and beyond! The SSE Arena, Belfast provides an outstanding location for first class Corporate Hospitality to businesses in Northern Ireland. The Arena possesses 24 Corporate Hospitality suites comprising of 20 x 12 seated suites and 4 x 28 seated suites along with a 64 seated luxury lounge facility.

We had a box for the show last night. It was brilliant. The live show is so much fun. Ant and Dec are so enthusiastic and lively. They interact brilliantly with the audience and are not afraid to go into the audience and do close ups. The Belfast audience loved them. This show is great for adults and kids. The supporting cast are great too with some great songs and dance routines. We had a ball. Go if you can!

I love this place but can be better. The management team should look into refurbish the whole odyssey place. Its old and ragging for outside. I enjoyed my visit and recommend everyone.
