“Tour of the theatre”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

A wonderful opportunity to not only see the intimate theatre but also to explore behind the scenes of the stage and the theatre as a whole. A gem of architectural beauty and history. What brought the theatre to life during the tour was the knowledge and enthusiasm of the tour guide - Lena, who had a particular passion for Oscar Wilde. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting waterford, who has an interest in culture or theatre. Enjoyed the coffee and cake in the public cafe afterwards,and would certainly recommend a visit.

“A gem of a provincial theatre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We are lucky enough to live within twenty minutes of central Waterford and have attended many
productions here. The atmosphere of this quite small theatre is incredible and adds that something extra to the performance. We recently attended the first night of a locally written and produced opera "The Invader" which we thoroughly enjoyed. Productions here are always top quality so you can book a night out with confidence.

“Theatre in the Waterford Viking Triangle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

A super Theatre, all the modern facilities with old World charm. Close to The Tower Hotel for that pre-theatre dinner and set within the Waterford Viking Triangle
