The National Opera House, Wexford, is Ireland’s first custom built opera house offering some of the best acoustics of any performance venue in Europe. This award winning and multi purpose performance venue is nestled into the heart of the ancient Viking harbour town and home to the internationally renowned Wexford Festival Opera.

The National Opera House, Wexford, presents two diverse performance spaces, the O’Reilly Theatre and the more intimate, versatile space of the Jerome Hynes Theatre. This venue is a hub for theatre hosting the best local, national and international music, opera, dance and comedy performances. It also includes numerous meeting and hospitality facilities along with a café on the top floor where you can take in the spectacular views of Wexford town and harbour.

Located just 1.5 hours from Dublin, the National Opera House was opened in 2008 on the footprint of the old Theatre Royal on the narrow residential area of High Street, which is parallel to Wexford’s Main Street.
