The Abbey Theatre's founders W.B. Yeats and Lady Gregory had the vision to 'bring upon the stage the deeper thoughts and emotions of Ireland'. Our ambitious artistic programme of classic Irish drama and new Irish writing holds a mirror up to Irish society. Over the years, the Abbey has nurtured and premiered the work of major Irish playwrights such as Marina Carr, Frank McGuinness, Tom Murphy and a new generation of writers such as Richard Dormer, Stacey Gregg, Nancy Harris and Elaine Murphy. We also nurture a new generation of Irish artists through our artistic development programmes and commitment to discovering new acting, writing and directing talent.

What a great show. I took the whole family, this show threw everything that I have ever taken my whole family to, into the shade. This is a must see event. Such talent, thought, innovation, fun, credibility. Really amazing. The story is simple, beautifully woven,...More

This is a dreadful play. It is fragmented with several stories going on at the same time, none of which are gripping. There's the classic girl who is forward and seduces a geek who is being bullied. But guess what? She's a vampire and her...More

Attended an excellent tour given by Caitlin. Mixed the history of the theatre and its place in the Irish cultural revolution and the current staging and operation of the modern theatre to great effect.

Fantastic production with excellent cast. Enjoyed the cabaret seating experience - very creative! The area immediately around the theatre does not have many dinner options, but just down the street a few blocks is The Winding Stair, which was very good.

Hi, There's no formal dress code at the Abbey Theatre. Generally speaking, there's a great view from all seats as there's no pillars or obstructions. We'd recommend 8-10 rows back from the stage. Feel free to get in... More
