Great venue for small conference meeting

Attended a recent small conference / meeting here on the first floor. Beautiful building. Impeccable service and food. Would recommend for this type of meeting.

Theatre Royal has most of the requirements that a great theatre should have: ornate theatre with rococo plasterwork everywhere, narrow cramp-inducing velvet covered seats, gilt boxes, balconies, an orchestra pit. It has a dramatic entrance lobby area too: cafe, counters selling sweets (the chocolates were all a bit overly expensive and grand, though. Who wants El Salvadorian dark chocolate with... More

I really enjoy going here and have been experimenting with different seating areas. Even had a good view from balcony seat when attending Wee Hansel and Gretel with my children. Staff are very friendly, has been very clean every time I've attended. The lift to the upper floors are a godsend but the staircase is so beautiful, it's worth walking... More

Visiting Glasgow and saw that this was on and thought to give "the ballet" a try one cold and wet afternoon. Bought inexpensive tickets for seats in the balcony. No other pair of seats were available but the balcony was about half full. High up and a great view but lucky that there were plenty of empty seats as otherwise... More

Was there for a performance by the Scottish Ballet of Hansell & Gretel...superb performance but an outstanding cast. Would recommend the production to Ballet lovers and theatre goers alike. Wonderful costumes very well done! Only downside is the theatre itself in getting to your seat...can be a bit precarious for anyone not sure footed in the upper circle

Lovely setting and great views although the balcony is not for the faint hearted with hardly any leg room. Superb production with excellent orchestra. Drinks very expensive.

I really liked this. If you simply want to hear the same music from the original film , then buy the DVD for a fiver. This was a young and enthusiastic cast with good acting and great singing A lot of the music is canned and I would have preferred a band in the orchestra pit. The theatre itself is... More

Just love the Commitments film, the music, the dancing, the Dublin banter. When we got our tickets, we wondered how such a great film could be performed on stage? We were not disappointed. The story was told in a very simplistic and vibrant way. The characters were all wonderful, great singers and actors, vibrant and Irish. Love to see this... More
