Venue Hire:

The Olympia is a beautifully preserved theatre in the heart of Dublin City, and one of Dublin's most loved music venues. It hosts a wide range of events every year including live music, comedy & theatre shows.

The venue is unique in that we can host both fully seated theatre shows, and can remove the seating from the Stalls area for standing shows.  Capacity for fully seated shows is 1,298 approx and for partially standing/partially seated shows the capacity is 1,661 approx.

We recently renovated our dressing rooms and backstage area, and our expert production staff are on hand to ensure your event runs smoothly. We will provide Box Office ticketing facilities, theatre staff, full bar facilities, and the majority of technical equipment required, in order to accommodate you during each stage of your event planning.

We have kitchen & catering facilities, and can put you in touch with a great catering company for quotes if required.

Our venue is available for hire enquiries; for more information and to check current availability and rates, please contact our Venue Booker Aoife McLaughlin on +353 1 672 5883 or
