I've been to the Gate Theatre on several occasions - each visit is similar to a sponge = I want to soak up more and more culture - talent needs to be appreciated, be seen and heard. I saw the show 'The Vortex', by Noel Coward - a brilliant witty performance with a twist running until 22 March 2014 ,... More

There was a lovely atmosphere in this theatre. I almost felt I was on the stage it is a small intimate venue. I loved the fact that they served tea in china cups. The play itself was outstanding I was enthralled from beginning to end.

The quality of the actors is also first class and recognised as such. It's decor... More

This is like a theatre from grander times. The decor is either dated or traditional according to your prejudices. I think it's beautifully traditional. There are no bad seats that I've ever encountered and the sound and view of the stage is excellent. They have a very good selection of shows and usually just the fact that it's the Gate... More

My husband and I booked tickets to see A Streetcar named Desire at the Gate Theatre on the closing night. We had never been to the Gate before and were pleasantly surprised at the overall evening. We parked almost outside the theatre; fantastic for a city centre. Parking is free on the street from 7pm to I think it was... More

We saw the play "Street Car Named Desire." The play was excellent, the theatre was superb and very well kept. We found everyone to be friendly including the staff and the prices were very reasonable.

This was the second time I visited this place during my stay in Dublin, this time alone though. And its sight fills me with amazement every time I come here. It is easy to reach as its location is very central. The performances and the performers are absolutely brain-shaking fabulous. They are engaging and riveting. I will come back again... More

You can always rely on the Gate for wonderful productions and solid performances from all actors on stage. The theatre itself is lovely and intimate, and the relaxed staff really make you feel comfortable and very welcome.
