Abbey Theatre

The Abbey Theatre is Ireland’s National Theatre. It was founded by Nobel Laureate W.B Yeats and Lady Gregory in 1904 and has played a vital and often controversial role in the literary, social and cultural life of Ireland. It holds a rich history and is closely associated with the Irish Literary Revival.

Renowned as a writer’s theatre, it has contributed some of the world’s greatest theatrical works from such writers as J M Synge and Sean O’Casey, through to modern day classics. Today, The Abbey Theatre’s mission “is to imaginatively engage with all of Irish society through the production of ambitious, courageous and new theatre in all its forms”.

The Abbey Theatre is located on Abbey Street, less than a 10-minute stroll from The Morgan Hotel. During your visit to the theatre, you can enjoy refreshments from the Abbey bar, which opens before and after performances. The theatre also has the Peacock Café providing food and hot drinks. Drinks for the interval can be pre-ordered, to avoid long queues.

Tickets can be purchased online or at the theatre box office. They are very affordably priced beginning at just €10 for early bird tickets, which are available up to six weeks before the event. Front row seats for all performances are set at just €13. The Abbey theatre also offers additional discounts for students and seniors.

Please refer to the Abbey Theatre website for the most up to date information on pricing, event dates and opening hours.
