The National Opera House is Ireland's first custom-built, multi-purpose opera house and home to the world-famous Wexford Festival Opera.

The stunning landmark building is nestled into the heart of Wexford's beautiful ancient Viking harbour town.  The new building opened in 2008 on the footprint of the old Theatre Royal, which had been the home of the Wexford Festival Opera for over 50 years.

Just one and a half hours from Dublin, the award-winning National Opera House is a world-class venue offering two diverse performance spaces, the O'Reilly Theatre and the Jerome Hynes Theatre, with numerous meeting and hospitality facilities, including several bars and dining spaces available for private functions. Have a look inside the  National Opera House.  

A recipient of numerous prestigious national and international design awards since its completion, it is a magnificent tribute to the many people involved in the delivery of the building.
