Fodor's Review

During 2015 the Waterfront underwent a major expansion, doubling its exhibition and conference space and now ranks as one of the world's top performance venues. It houses a 2,235-seat concert hall (for ballet and classical, rock, and Irish music) and a 500-seat studio space (for modern dance, jazz, and experimental theater). The Arc Brasserie (5–7:30) and two bars make the Waterfront a convenient place to eat, have a pint, and enjoy the river views before or after your culture fix. On the ground floor, the We Make Café serves meals and snacks like fresh coconut scones, shortbread, and pancakes. The main box office for booking events here is based at the Ulster Hall in Bedford Street.
