Theatres, Museums and Festivals

Dublin Theatres

With theatres like the Gaiety Theatre (2 minutes’ walk), Olympia Theatre (8 minutes’ walk) and the Abbey Theatre (15 minutes’ walk) only a stone throw away, our visitors will not be lacking in evening- or even day- time cultural activities. Visit the Abbey, also known as the National theatre of Ireland for some great theatrical performances or attend a musical, comedy or drama piece in the Gaiety and perhaps a showing of Riverdance. Have a look out for some of the great concerts in the Olympia Theatre or join one of their sing along sessions to musicals like The Greatest Showman.

Irish Film Institute

If you’re looking for a special cinema experience or some of the best film festivals in Ireland look no further than Ireland’s national cultural institution for film. The Irish Film Institute promotes Irish film heritage through their range of film related educational and entertaining programmes. Although offering so much more to both audiences and those in the film industry, one of the ways you can engage with the Irish Film Institute includes attending their festivals like the Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival or the IFI Family festival. If you’re lucky to be in Dublin during one of their events, we definitely recommend attending. Or if you’re visiting Dublin specifically for a film festival, why not stay in Arthaus Hotel, located in the heart of Dublin?

The Little Museum of Dublin

The Little Museum is the ideal place to learn about Dublin’s history and rich heritage a short 5 minutes’ walk from our hotel. With guided tours running every hour seven days a week, learning about Dublin has never been so entertaining. Although entrance is only allowed by guided tour, this is included in the admission price which is only €10 for adults and €8 for students and seniors. The tour was great but now you’re hungry? Hatch & Sons serves great Irish cuisine and is located right under the Little Museum of Dublin.
