The National Opera House is an opera house and multipurpose venue in Wexford town.

The opera house may be an ideal filming location for scenes that need a large and impressive auditorium, for scenes set in a theatre, or for scenes that are set in the lobby of a performance space. Built in 2008, the Opera House is an award winning, world-class venue. It is modern, well-equipped and fit for a variety of purposes.

The location has two auditoriums. The O’Reilly Theatre is the main auditorium and the Jerome Hynes Theatre is a smaller blackbox theatre. The Jerome Hynes seats 172, and the O’Reilly seats 855. The O’Reilly Theatre is lined with American black walnut which gives the space a striking and intimate feel. The main stage is 9.5 metres by 9 metres (excluding wings). The smaller blackbox stage is 9.5 metres by 4.5 metres.

Backstage, there are rehearsal spaces, a dance studio, changing rooms, a board room and an open plan meeting room. The Opera House’s lobby is modern and bright and features a wooden staircase that reaches up to the third floor. Also on the premises are four bars and a restaurant.

Outside, the building has an unassuming entranceway and the building is tucked away in a winding residential street in Wexford town.
