After the whirlwind success of the movie version, Disney High School Musical – The Ice Tour is sure to be a massive attraction for both young and old. This hugely popular event takes place in the RDS, Dublin from Wednesday 20th to Sunday 24th of February and you can expect ticket sales to go through the roof! We’ve sussed out the best hotels in Dublin that are close to the venue and you can find out more about the show itself along with directions and further information on the RDS.
The RDS is situated to the south of Dublin City Centre in the Dublin 4 suburb of Ballsbridge. It’s easy enough to get to from the city centre. Firstly there are a number of bus routes, the number 5, 7 and 45 that will get you to the Merrion Road entrance of the venue – all three depart from outside of Trinity College on Nassau Street.
The two nearest DART stations are Lansdowne and Sandymount, both of which are a few blocks away. The nearest Luas stop is Ranelagh on the Green Line Luas.
You can also walk to the RDS from the city centre. From Trinity College walk along Nassau Street for about 150 metres or so. Take a right, following signs for Mount Street and the R118. Continue along this road for about 2kms, it eventually changes to Merrion Road and you’ll see the RDS straight ahead.
Disney High School Musical – The Ice Tour is coming to Dublin in February 2008. The High School Musical was one of the most successful Disney channel movies ever released and was a huge success when it was released in 2006. The story was essentially a retelling of Romeo and Juliet that was made accessible to a younger audience. There was a sequel released in the summer of 2007 and this was also a massive success on the international stage.
Based on these two movies, the all-new ice show was created to bring another exciting dimension to the amazing singing and energetic dancing seen on the movies. Why not bring all the kids to this fantastic extravaganza that is performed by some of the best world-class skaters.
There will be a number of performances held at the end of February, from Wednesday 20th to Sunday 24th. On the Wednesday, Thursday and Friday there are two shows, an early show at 4pm and a later showing at 7:30pm. Then over the Saturday and Sunday there are three start times: 12noon, 3:45pm and 7:30pm. With so many times and dates, you should have no problem finding a time that suits you.
