Olympia Theatre in Dublin
« on: November 19, 2018, 21:56:44 PM »
Has anyone been ?

Maybe popping over next May to catch one of Mrs B's bands (Jack Savoretti) and wanted some insider knowledge...

Website says it holds around 1300 seated, but not much more

Great venue. Like an old school theatre. Stalls snd 2 circles.
Some seats have restricted viewing so beware of that but I've been there a few times and always had great views.


Right in the centre of nightlife Dublin too with plenty of restaurants and with Temple Bar just around the corner.



You can check out any time you like but you can never leave!

Always regretted not seeing REM there when they did their 5 night stand....

Looks a great venue and you know Dublin is ace...

Superb little venue Bez, saw Cheap Trick there 7 years ago - supported by a band featuring
Jane Seymour's son....
She was there in the crowd wearing rock chick gear and I have to say, it worked for me 😂

Agree with all the above, really great old style music hall venue.  Saw the stage version of Once there.  Had circle seats with a perfect view of everything.  Highly recommended. :)
