First time in this theatre and I was very impressed. The lobby area is bright and airy, the bar was accessible and reasonably priced and once inside the theatre, the seats were roomy and comfortable - we had great seats and it looked like there was not a bad seat in the house.

Overall had a great experience - it was our first time there and our seats were perfect - only fault I would say was that it was too loud (I'm 19 and I found it quite loud) and a few times I couldn't hear what the actors were saying over the music! Excellent show and the theatre was incredible :)

Having attended many shows in the BGE Theatre I have never had a bad seat. There is fantastic views from every one of them! The only drawback is that there is no break in the seats in the stalls so they are approx 60 /70 seats across, not ideal if you are in the middle & need the loo!
After any show I recommend going across the road to the Marker Hotel for a nightcap in their rooftop bar.

This is our first visit to this theatre and if first impressions are anything to go by WOW. From walking up to it and entering this theartre it shows itself off in every way possible. It also has a very happy and what appears to be dedicated staff.You are made welcome from the moment you get to the door and all the way through your visit.
The bar etc is well staffed and very efficient.The prices are no different to anywhere else in Dublin so no sudden surprises there.
The musical itself was top notch and would recommend it to everyone.
Congratulations to all involved for an outstanding performance.

As stated above you are made welcome by ALL staff so I hope if any management read these reviews they may congratulate them on doing a great job
