Bord Gais Energy Theatre
Ireland’s largest theatre
A 20 minute pleasant walk along the River Liffey (or a very convenient bus ride) will bring you from the Drury Court Hotel to the Bord Gais Energy Theatre. Located in Dublin’s docklands and surrounded by a wide selection of restaurants and hotels – all offering great pre-theatre dining options – the Bord Gais theatre is Ireland’s largest fixed seat theatre.
The theatre was designed by Daniel Libeskind, the internationally renowned architect (who’s work can also be seen in Berlin and New York) and focused on creating the very best acoustics and view for every attendee. Unlike some older theatres, the Bord Gais was constructed without any pillars- guaranteeing an excellent view of the stage from every seat.
The theatre attracts a wide range of performances, including operas and musicals- many of these being West End and Broadway transfers, as well as films screened with live orchestral accompaniments and exclusive interviews.
There is a fully stocked bar and snacks stand on each level of the three-tiered theatre, allowing patrons to make the most of the intervals at performances.
The Bord Gais theatre offers a great view over the surrounding Docklands area, a bustling space that has been regenerated since 2008, with a forest of modern, red illuminated poles- installed by Martha Schwartz Partners- leading down to the water’s edge.
