I recently attended a show, seating up close with the stage giving it a real close interaction with the performers. Easy access to the building. Reception and seating area,nicely laid out. Staff very helpful. Only down side is that the seating is very tight.other than that well worth a visit for a show.

Riverbank offers such a variety of events, there’s always something to suit somebody. The staff are *so* friendly and they make wonderful efforts with costumes and decor for special occasions! I just love the cinema choices each season, and the theatre and live shows are always worth the trip. Great coffee in the café with lovely staff. Thumbs up all round !!

This used to be one of my favourite places to while away a hour or so especially during the winter. However since Starbucks wheedled their way in to the coffee shop I only go to events and forego drinks.

This is an excellent venue for a show - it's so intimate- you are up close and personal with the performers. Saw Des Bishop and Little Green Cars here. We will definitely be back.
PS The cappuccino at cafe is pretty good!

This is a nice little venue with a variety of offerings. I prefer live comedy although it has very "artsy" films, not always a great hit the films. Theatre offerings usually better.

The Movie was great as was the audience which was mainly Defence Force Personnel, Serving or Veterans and Families. There needs to be more seating in the Cafe and maybe some variety of foods, i think it would attract people to go back a second time.

the Riverbank is a lovely venue for a play or a intimate reading or concert. it has a fine stage that is within reach of the audience. The other rooms are bright and airy and there is a café upstairs at the venue. The café is expensive enough for a cup of coffee or for a small bottle of water,

we have been to a local school play here that was a big production for them and it was fabulous seeing it in this venue. You felt like you were part of the show rather then being at it. Good venue.

We went here yesterday for the presentation of Animagination: The Fantastical Time. It was superb and excellently presented. Our 9yo child loved it and am sure all children would too. The show is only about 20 minutes long, but well worth it. And the entrance was only €3...good value!
