The Bord Gáis Energy Theatre in the Dublin docklands has been put on the market with a guide price in excess of €20m.

Property company CBRE has been instructed to handle the sale by receivers Paul McCann and Stephen Tennant of Grant Thornton, who were appointed by the National Asset Management Agency.

The 2,111-seat theatre is the largest in Ireland and opened in 2010 as the Grand Canal Theatre.

It was renamed in March 2012 as part of a naming rights agreement with Bord Gáis Energy, which is in place until 2018.
