Bord Gais Energy

The Bord Gais Energy Theatre has become one of Dublin and Ireland’s most recent pinnacles. The theatre came about due to a rising demand for a location to facilitate large scale productions from musicals, drama and operas. In 2001 a vision was brought to life by the support of the Dublin Docklands Development Authority and a combination of Architectural genius that would make it one of Ireland’s most iconic buildings situated in Dublin’s Docklands.

Now over 500,000 visitors attend the Bord Gais theatre every year. It has facilitated world class acts such as “Wicked” the musical, “Billy Elliot” and everything else from the “Rocky Horror Show” to “Swan Lake” to “Sister Act”, there is a wide variety of productions to suit all tastes.
