The Olympia Theatre Dublin



No building in Dublin recalls the Victorian Music Hall more readily than the Olympia Theatre, with its glass canopy, supported by ornamental pillar and wrought iron scrollwork. Situated opposite Dublin Castle in the heart of the city, the theatre was designed by John Callaghan, a well known architect of the time, for Dan Lowrey who opened his new theatre, known as The Star of Erin, on the site of the present Olympia Theatre on December 22nd, 1878. The venue remains Dublin’s most loved theatres & music venues, with a repertoire that spans all genres, rock, pop, comedy, theatre, pantomime, cabaret, traditional, folk, hip-hop, metal, easy listening, variety acts, ballet, magic & more. The stellar reputation of the theatre is proved time & time again when world famous acts request intimate shows here for their Irish fans.

In recent years we’ve had big names such as: REM, Radiohead, David Bowie, Morrissey, Muse, Foo Fighters, The Strokes, Blur, Kings Of Leon, Michael Buble, Alicia Keys, The Killers, The Prodigy, Snow Patrol, Interpol, Arcade Fire, Sufjan Stevens, The Script, Faith No More, The Pixies, The Specials, Florence & The Machine, Bryan Adams, Mumford & Sons, Beady Eye, Adele, Queens Of The Stone Age & Noel Gallagher, all of whom chose the relatively small venue to host shows here when they could have sold out large arenas. The ornate doors of The Olympia Theatre have been open & welcoming patrons for the last 115 years, and we look forward to welcoming many future generations to our venue.
