The Gaiety Theatre Dublin



Designed by architect C.J.Phipps, the Gaiety was opened on 27 November 1871 with the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland as guest of honour and a double bill of Goldsmith’s evergreen comedy She Stoops to Conquer followed by the tuneful burlesque La Belle Sauvage, The Gaiety Theatre has remained true to the vision of its founders in presenting the highest quality musical and dramatic entertainment.

The Gaiety was extended by renowned theatre architect Frank Matcham in 1883 retaining its Victorian charm. It remains Dublin's longest-established, continuously producing theatre.

The theatre played host to the1971 Eurovision Song Contest, the first to be staged in Ireland, during the Gaiety's centenary year.
