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 Olympia Theatre is a fantastic venue if you’re hoping to see your artist of choice in a more relaxed and intimate setting.
In recent years the theatre has welcomed World-famous acts such as David Bowie, Muse, Foo Fighters, Kings Of Leon, Alicia Keys, The Killers, Florence & The Machine, Mumford & Sons, Adele, Paolo Nutini, and The XX, to name just a few! Artists simply love performing in the intimate atmosphere and often mention the totally different feel to that of the larger theatres and stadiums.
