National Concert Hall is on Earlfort Terrace and its such a beautiful old building. Many great live performances are put on there from musicals, operas etc. have been there over the years to see some Christmas performances and have booked to go to The Glory of Christmas seasonal and traditional music to get me in the mood for Christmas mood. Large auditorium with very comfortable seats. There is a shop to buy some music CD’s and The Terrace restaurant and a full bar. Parking outside pay... Read more...

The National Concert Hall is well worth a visit for some excellent performances shown on a daily basis. The interior and exterior are very elegant with lots of parking on street for a fee. A local bus stops nearby. It is located across from the Conrad Hotel and quite near St Stephens Green park with the Iveagh Gardens just behind. If you like classical, jazz, opera or traditional music then a visit to the concert Hall is a must. Lovely foyer and fairly comfortable seats with a restaurant... Read more...

I love this place, been here many many times. This is heaven for classical music lovers as well as musicians. The seats could be a bit more comfy but you get used to them or quickly forget about them by letting yourself enjoy the performance. No matter what is on, you can be sure that it is always quality performance. Never had a bad experience. Recommend it to all age group, try it sometime with your kids, you'll be surprise the impact it'll have on them. Go an educate the youth and lets... Read more...

The National Concert Hall on Earlsfort Terrace in Dublin 2 is celebrating 30 years this September.I remember being brought here as a child on many occasions and it helped to foster a great love of music in me. It is such a fantastic resource to have on our doorstep. The programme schedules are excellent and there is actually a wide and varied genre, for example bonnie tyler playing in early August. Highly recommend to all music lovers.... Read more...

Having now been to one of the popular Tuesday lunchtime concerts, I'd like to add a bit to my previous review for those wondering about the whole 'Grab & Go' thing. For €5 you can get a sandwich or a wrap (they're nice, but nothing special) and tea or coffee. However, they also have soup and bread, slabs of cake, juice, jams and the like.... So, there you have it.... Read more...

Thirty years old and thriving, a visit to the NCH is, surely, a must for anyone even remotely interested in classical music (and, indeed, other types). A beautiful building, a uniquely elegant hall, a small shop which is hard to come out of without buying some CD or other, great ticket prices.... The Terrace Café, just inside the door, is a lovely restaurant. We had dinner there before one of the 8 o'clock concerts - it was almost full with happy, excited concert goers. The food, whilst...

Really nice place. Loads of nice decor, would go for a day out if it's open would reccomend it. This Building is a really old one and deffo one of the nicest the country has... Read more...

I love the Concert Hall. I worked there for a while on the ticket desk. I loved every minute of it. I still go to concerts there as often as I can. I love it at Christmas when there are some lovely shows on and makes me feel all Christmassy. The interior is beautiful and is the outside. As another reviewer said the place makes them feel all important, I can understand that. There's nothing stuffy about the place all nice and relaxed.... Read more...

When living near Baton Rouge I used to attend at some Gospel Choir Music. A great morning of singing and rolling in the aisles. Here in Dublin I head in to the National Concert Hall in Earlsfort Terrace for that big, loud, sound that engulfs your senses. Up and coming treats will be the Philadelphia Orchestra in August, The Colours Concert next week and the orchestra of the age of enlightenment on the 20th June. The louder the better. Have a look at the attached youtube. ... Read more...

I remember first being brought here as a child with my school and I was fascinated by the place. There are concerts here daily and with such variation suit all musical tastes.The RTE Symphony Orchestra regularly play here. While it's home to our National Symphony Orchestral I have seen plenty of famous international artists perform there , it's a great venue.... Read more...

This is an absolutely gorgeous venue in Earlsfort Terrace. The building was originally built to house the National Exhibition in 1908 and was then a part of University College Dublin for many years. The interior is lovely - it's worth arriving early to have a drink in such nice surroundings. They also have many lunchtime concerts, which are very keenly priced, if not free, and are attended by nearby office workers. In the summer, there are also free lunchtime concerts in the Iveagh Gardens,... Read more...
