Your Visit

In the 220 years since the establishment of the Georgian playhouse which was subsequently adapted in the late nineteenth century to become the Theatre Royal we know today, Waterford has been renowned for its local musical and dramatic traditions. The Theatre Royal, often referred to as “The People’s Theatre”, has been the traditional venue for this creative activity down through the generations.

It is the home for long established amateur societies and hosted the Waterford International Festival of Light Opera since its inception in 1958. As the premiere venue in the South East of Ireland, the Theatre Royal plays host to the best national and international touring artists and companies and, with the support of Waterford City and County Council and The Arts Council, is also firmly committed to supporting artists in their professional practice.
