There is an interesting production history attached, and attracts some of the top actors in the world. A recent season of Samuel Beckett plays was first class. Reasonable ticket prices and no bad seat.... More

Our timing was amazing and we managed to secure Pride and Prejudice tickets the night before. The theatre was beautiful and the stage set up really well.

Really enjoyed the superb production of pride and prejudice on in the gate theatre. Stephen Brennan's performance as the long suffering Mr. Bennett was a highlight.

Really enjoyable evening performance of P&P at the cosy Gate Theatre. Small-ish theatre with good views from all seats.

I saw Pride and Prejudice here, and was not disappointed. The theatre is absolutely gorgeous and I don't believe their is a bad seat in the house. I look forward to Wuthering Heights in November!

We discoveret it by chance having the hotel just in front and we decided to go knowing the novel and reading that it was again on the stage by popular request. It was fantastic, funny and interesting, a very lovely performance, great acteresses (and actors) just a bit cold in the theatre but a part from that we were completely... More

Not as well known as the Abbey but it is incredibly charming and just at the top of O'Connell Street! Well worth seeing something here!
