Although I haven´t had the pleasure to read the original text, I have read some reviews on the play at the Gate and the main actress herself couldn´t do it neither, so... I think it would be the ideal to fully understand the play and appreciate it. Once I went out I was trying to analyze the play and reach... More

Just saw the Wuthering Heights and I have to write a review because it was an excellent adaptation of the famous novel. The actors were great as well but the way this evening was built up, the changes in the scenery and the makups were impressive. I was afraid that the end will be a little bit depressing but this...

An excellent performance of Wuthering Heights in this intimate and engaging theatre. At €25 a seat for the best view in the house, it's unbeatable. Booking in advance is a must for the most popular shows, done either over the phone, box office or online. Well worth a visit during any trip to Dublin.

Brilliant play, great acting and fantastic production. Wonderful tense drama in which two brothers confront each other about their deceased father's belongings, mediated by a hilarious Jewish furniture dealer. What a treat!

We were fortunate to have been in Dublin to see the Mariner at the Gate Theater. A wonderful play. Ticket price is very reasonable and the theater itself is beautifully cozy. Go early enough to have a spot of tea or (as we did) a bit of champagne before the play begins.

I get the this theatre at least once a year. The productions are always of the highest standard. The theatre itself is quite small, but intimate. 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. The usher was well-dressed and really informative, adding more class to our experience. You could even pre-order drinks so that at the short intermission they were ready and sitting on the tables in... More

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. The beautiful theatre is the perfect venue for such a classic! The late start did cause a little stress over the parking meter though...
