FAQ

Do you post out physical tickets?
No – after booking tickets online you'll be sent a confirmation email with a pdf attachment which contains your tickets (or on your Eventbrite app). You will need this in order for us to scan your ticket to gain entry to the show. You do not need to print it out, simply have it ready for display on your phone at the ticket desk.
The QR code on each ticket is unique and will only scan once.
Please do not purchase from 3rd party sellers.


What time does the concert start/end?
Live music/comedy shows normally start 45mins after doors on a 7pm door and is finished by 10.30pm. We do not post or advertise specific stage times.

For late night DJ events e.g. 11pm doors, music starts immediately.

Are there any age restrictions for shows?
All shows are strictly ages 18+ unless stated otherwise.
2 forms of ID may be required (national age card, driver licence, passport - student ID is accepted as a 2nd form). Schoolgoers will not be admitted.
Fraudulent ID or ID not matching the person presenting it will be confiscated, treated as stolen property and issued to the Gardaí.

Is the venue seated?
Unless otherwise stated, all live music shows are standing.
There are a small number of tables along the side which are limited and go on a first come first serve basis so we recommend coming early for the best chance of getting a seat. They cannot be booked in advance.
Comedy shows are seated events.

What about accessibility?
We have a wheelchair accessible lift at ground floor to venue level. At venue level there is also a wheelchair accesible toilet.

The website says X is sold out. Is that really true?
Yes. We do not reserve tickets for sale on the door, so if we've marked it as sold out on the website then it is definitely sold out.

Is it OK for me to record/film/take pictures etc?
Generally, photos without flash are fine. Video is generally not allowed.
