Visited this theatre for an astronomy talk but if you get the chance to see any show here then take it, you will seldom have the opportunity to visit such a fine old theatre kept in such beautiful condition, and a lovely cafe upstairs too.

A fine local landmark positioned between Reginald's tower and the Bishops palace and almost opposite Waterford Crystal and almost in front of the new medieval museum:all worth seeing. Waterford city centre is really very pleasant to linger for an hour or two, and full of history.

Went to see the Phantom of Opera and they were AMAZING. I have seen the original 3 times in West End, and I'm shocked to say this was equally as good from such young performers. The are all amazingly talented. Would be lovely to see this show being performed more often... The theatre itself is lovely. Clean with spacious seating.... More

Have been here many times throughout the years and the theatre always delivers. At a wonderful showing of the Phantom tonight. Outstanding performance from the cast, sound and lighting team. I just made it to the toilet before the endless queues began. I only went to the bar to get a water and the staff were beyond shocking that I... More

This is a beautiful theatre with parts of it over 200 years old. I like to look up these sites on Wikepedia to read of their history but in this case I couldn't find anything there (perhaps due to my computing skill level!). We chose a show to see whilst in Waterford from the theatre's excellent website and the booking... More
