It is not possible to buy tickets for the boxes at The Olympia Theatre, they are for the use of the guests of the artists, promoter & crew only.
There are no service charges when you book in person at the Ticketmaster outlet in The Olympia Box Office at 73 Dame Street, Dublin 2. You can pay by cash or card over the counter, the cost of the ticket is all you will need to pay.
Please note, The Olympia Box Office cannot take bookings over the phone, walk up counter sales only.
We keep our website updated with show time information as soon as we get it from the show promoters, so check out the event listing on www.olympia.ie. Your tickets should also give the show time and sometimes doors opening time. As a general rule:
Standing shows approximate times
Doors open - 7pm
Support act - 8pm
Main act - 9pm
Seated theatre shows approximate times
Doors open - 7.15pm/7.30pm
Show starts - 8pm
With a 20 minute interval
*Please note these are approximate times and are not guaranteed. The majority of our shows are at these times, but not all of them. Matinee times vary.
If you want to be sure of final times on the day of the show, check out the specific event page on our website where we try to always list the times as soon as we get them from the production crew. You could also try the Latest News section on the site, our Facebook page here, or call the Olympia Theatre Box Office on 01 679 3323 (dial 1).
For standing shows, we have an area in the Stalls level in front of the stage called the pit, it is a sectioned off space at the front of the auditorium which gives a great view of the artists.
Wristbands/pit passes are allocated to a limited number of Stalls standing ticketholders on a first come serve basis on the night of the show. We would recommend to be in with a chance to get a wristband that you arrive early on the night around doors opening time (usually 7pm), as those who are first into the Stalls standing area when the doors open could get lucky and be given a wristband. Please note however, we cannot guarantee you will be given a wristband.
As we rent out the theatre to various promoters who put on the shows here, it is the promoter & the artist’s production crew who manage the acts on the day, we have nothing to do with artist liaison. Sorry we cannot help with Meet & Greets.

The Olympia Theatre are delighted to exhibit an extensive number of photographs of Olympia shows, taken by some of Ireland's greatest live event photographers such as David Barry, Kyran O'Brien, James Goulden, James Tanner, Peter Neill, Mark Duggan, Alessio Michellini & more... They keep our website gallery & Facebook page alive & illuminated with amazing shots, as well as the walls of both the public & backstage areas of the theatre.
If you would like to own a copy of any of the photographs you've seen, or want any more information about the photographers, you can drop us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will forward your enquiry onto the photographer directly.
The photographs of The Olympia Theatre interior & exterior used to illustrate this website were taken by the very talented David Barry.
The majority of shows at The Olympia Theatre would be all ages, with Under 14's to be accompanied by an adult. Under 18's will not be allowed to gain access to the bars where alcohol is served, ID will be required to get into this area. There are shop facilities for Under 18's to get soft drinks and sweets.
Usually with younger patrons attending popular live standing concerts we would recommend you don't buy tickets for the standing section on the ground floor, but instead purchase seated tickets in either the Circle or the Upper Circle. Its not that this area would be unsafe, however there may be lots of people standing, with adults drinking alcohol out of plastic glasses, so younger patrons might be happier with a better view from the seats upstairs.
Please note, all late shows at The Olympia (doors open 11pm) would be Over 18's only events. ID will be required to gain access to the venue.
From time to time we may have a show that the promoters have deemed might not be suitable for those under the age of 16, but this would be noted on promoter's advertisements, and on the event details page on our website.
Because we rent out the theatre to various promoters who put on the shows here, we do not choose the acts ourselves. If you want to enquire about hiring The Olympia Theatre for your band to play, please check out the Venue Hire section.
