72 Dame Street, Temple Bar
This isn't the kind of venue you go to for a traditional, polished theater presentation, despite its luxurious appearance, and that's exactly why it's a local favorite.
Whether it's a musical about Ireland's favorite nightclub, the yearly Christmas pantomime, or a top comedy act on tour, performances are always a blast.
The crowds always dance and cheer at the conclusion of spectacular performances before moving to the bar inside, so expect just as much fun as you would on any bar-hopping night out.
Opened in 1878 as a music hall, after years of rivalry with the Gaiety Theatre, the Olympia settled down to staging a very similar gamut of musicals, live bands and comedy.
