Seats were terrible. We were sat at the very edge of the arena, couldn’t see anything on stage, only when the main act moved out to the edge of the stage. Absolute joke, will never be back

This venue is easily accessible with buses and trams and was very well marshalled at the end of the show for transport too. The acoustics were good and we thoroughly enjoyed Snow Patrol concert. We had a standing ticket and felt close enough to the...More

For a larger venue, it felt like quite an intimate show if you were near the front of the stage. One of the best venues in Europe.

A great venue, unobstructed view from all areas. Easy access on the LUAS from city centre and plenty of return trams waiting at the end of the show.

Enjoyed Florence & The Machine very much! The security staff were pleasant and the venue itself is amazing. My only complaint would be the over priced drink and €16 for two tubs of popcorn was just daylight robbery!

I was surprised they didn't ask for ID at the entrance when I attended a couple of months ago, but they do at the bar. I'd expect there would be a few younger people in the audience for Grande, and if they refused entry to... More
