The Abbey Theatre, founded by WB Yeats, is one of Ireland’s leading cultural institutions. First opening to the public on 27 December 1904, it moved from its original building after a fire in 1951.
The Abbey Theatre is renowned for its contemporary venue and staging of new Irish and global plays. It is Ireland’s national theatre and is inspired by the revolutionary ideals of our founders. Their mission is to imaginatively engage with all of Irish society through the production of ambitious, courageous, and new theatre in all its forms.
