The National Opera House is a world-class venue presenting Irish and international events, opera, music, family events, comedy, theatre and dance. The stunning landmark building also offers two diverse performance spaces, the O’Reilly Theatre and the Jerome Hynes Theatre, as well as numerous meeting and hospitality facilities including a number of bars and dining spaces that are available for private functions.
