I visited the opera house this weekend to see show. The surroundings were extremely beautiful fabulous walnut wood throughout. Staff most helpful and very pleasant. We did not have time to eat at here but menu looked good and not expensive. Cant wait to visit opera house again.

“Opera festival”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2014

Perfect setting in this most wonderful opera house. Wonderful food and a fantastic choice of wines. The service is efficient and the staff very pleasant. The menu is extensive and reasonably priced. The views over Wexford town and the estuary are breathtaking. The world renown opera house itself is the jewel in the crown that is Wexford. Well worth a visit, especially during the opera festival in October.

“Magnificent Music Venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2013

Visited Wexford recently for a David Gray Concert (9th December 2013), The acoustics, surroundings and the atmosphere this venue creates are magical. With the exception of the Royal Albert Hall, I have not experienced such a perfect venue for a concert, small intimate and yet utterly stunning. We had the two seats centre back row at the top and everything was clear and visible, every note reverberated around the walls. magical.

“Fabulous View”

Didn't get to any performances unfortunately but visited the cafe, the view is amazing, food was lovely and the ambiance of the whole place makes you want to come back. Toilets a bit difficult to find.
