The finest venue in city and country, Vicar Street has witnessed hundreds of memorable shows since it opened for business on Dublin’s Thomas Street 1998.
Thanks to legendary shows by Bob Dylan, Neil Young and Al Green and record-breaking comedy runs from Tommy Tiernan, Des Bishop and Dara O Brian, Vicar Street has become a firm favourite for both acts and fans.
The reasons for the venue’s success are many – it’s a hugely atmospheric room for any live show; the sound and sightlines are always perfect; customers and acts are always treated like kings. For concert-goers, it’s the best place in town to see a show. For performers, it’s the gig you want to do and do really, really well. The awards (IMRO Live Venue of the Year for 2008 and 2009) and media reviews (“one of the finest venues in Europe” - The Irish Times; “simply the best” - Irish Independent) confirm that.
But it’s not just about an illustrious heritage. Vicar Street is still hosting great shows from great artists week in and week out. Chances are you’re due a visit really soon...
