This theatre is a great venue and a wonderful asset for Dun Laoghaire. Free online booking or visit the theatre box office during the day to buy tickets, open till 5pm. Reasonably priced, 18 euros full price, or 16 euros for senior, student or unwaged when I visited in October 2013. All the seats are priced the same. Varied programme.
Large foyer to have a drink and/or meet with friends before and during the show.
The stage is on floor level as is the first row, then the seats are raked so the audience has an excellent view of the stage wherever they sit, even those at the top in the single row that runs along the side of the theatre. The seats at the side swivel and resemble chairs in a hairdresser with a metal bar to rest your feet on because they are raised off the floor. The seats in the main area have adequate leg room but if you require additional leg room choose Row H or the front row.
I sat on the end of Row F but moved to three seats in on the front row after the interval as there was a draught on my shoulders but I was no better off on the front row. I recommend taking a scarf or shawl in case this breeze from the air conditioning was not a one off. This is the reason my rating is a 4.
The staff and volunteers are very pleasant and helpful. Check out the theatre website to see what's on if you are visiting Dun Laoghaire - www.paviliontheatre.ie
