26–27 Abbey Street Lower, North City
Ireland's national theater more than meets expectations for its prestigious reputation.
The Abbey was established by infamous theater fans (W B Yeats, anyone?) and has long been a favorite among a diverse group of Dubliners, some of whom had previously dismissed theater as being pretentious.
The affordable tickets and appropriate emphasis on diversity, inclusion, and ambitious new theater work are helpful.
Legendary is the Abbey Theatre.
It was established in the early 20th century by a group of writers, including the poet W B Yeats, and quickly rose to prominence as Irish theater's cutting edge.
Here, controversial plays by up-and-coming authors like Sean O'Casey and J. M. Synge were produced, each of which ignited riots on opening night.
These plays are now considered classics and serve as the Abbey theater's mainstay, while the Peacock stage showcases experimental work.
