A wonderful production in a charming old Dublin city centre theatre. Colourful show with new ideas from a creative Director and an animated cast who clearly enjoy performing and leads to wonderful audience reactions. A show not to be missed now that it has added further shows for a limited extended run. Bill L

Scored tickets for a first night, 2 mins from our hotel. Great performances, lovely little period theatre I'm guessing Georgian. Nice add on to our short break.

We were lucky enough to see an excellent performance of Arthur Miller's 'The Price'. Have been many times before to this theatre which is usually very good, as long as they are not showing another performance of 'The Importance of being Earnest'. The atmosphere at the Gate is rather like sitting in a large lounge with chandeliers, most enjoyable.

Whatever the reason for your trip to Dublin, do go to the Gate for the best theatre experience in Dublin. Their productions are wonderful. The venue is very good and it is altogether a great night out. I often go if I am in Dublin on my own and it seems to be always possible to get a single ticket... More

Everybody knows about The Abbey Theatre, but don't overlook The Gate! Saw Arthur Miller's play, The Price, there in July, 2014. The whole experience was great. Very reasonable ticket prices, a nice little theatre bar to relax in before the performance, friendly staff, friendly patrons. The show itself was masterfully done and well appreciated by the audience, which rose in... More

Went to see "the price". The theatre is beautiful. Very traditional with high ceilings with ornate coving and plush carpet. Tea and coffee was served in China cups. The set on stage was brilliant and the play superb. Heavy story but great acting from the four actors in the play. Loved all the photos on the walks of other actors... More

Really, could anyone have done more? The acting superb, easy Will Call ticket collection, delightful performance - costumes to die for - settings unbelievable - and intermission wine? Really, what else could one want of a theatre?

My wife and I were here in May for a Saturday matinee. We booked about two months in advance and had the best seats in the house for a production of Oscar Wilde's "An Ideal Husband." We couldn't have been more pleased by every aspect of our experience. The acting was superb from top to bottom. There were two butlers... More

I have been there on two separate trips to Ireland. The quality of set design, acting and acoustics was remarkable. I especially enjoyed having tea at the half. Not a typical North American experience. I loved it abd it is an easy walk from Temple Bar where my hotel was.
