We had heard of this company because of their visits to the Edinburgh Festival. It was a great treat to see them in their home city. The theatre is in a lovely old building with an elegant Georgian interior and the seats are very comfortable. The show we saw (The Father) was exceedingly well done, with very clever and effective...

Went to the preview (14th Sept). All the performances were excellent but Owen Roe is truly outstanding as the father. The set design is genius in how it deals with the time lapses in the father's dementia. One of my top nights ever in theatre was A View from the Bridge with Christopher Maloni but Owen Roe's performance matched this,... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the performance of 'The Constant Wife' . Very skilfully portrayed by all performers. The real charm, however, lay with the layout an decor of the theatre. A wonderful experience.

We went to see this play on a Monday evening. The house was a sell out. The evening was magic. A theatrical treat from start to finish. The theatre itself is homely and extremely comfortable, small enough to be intimate. The comedy was well played and well acted but I want to pick out one actor for special praise, namely,... More

Wonderful unique experience to see 'The Constant Wife'. Nice to have a bottle of Coriole Sangiovese - a local wine for us from South Australia for a pre-theatre drink. Lovely cuppa at the interval. Thoroughly enjoyable.

It is not very often that Dublin has such a wonderful play on offer and we jumped at the chance to go to our favourite theatre in Dublin. The play itself was excellent from beginning to end and the production in this wonderful theatre only added to the enjoyment. There is something reminiscent of a bygone era in this lovely... More

Went to see this play tonight and it's an absolute must see. Beautiful staged dressed and produced. The actors were outstanding and the play was humorous and entertaining. The theatre itself was just beautiful. It was clean and comfortable. The staff were all lovely and the tea and the interval was served in China cups. What more could you ask... More

Went to see this absolutely brilliant play few weeks ago. I have arranged groups for everything on at the Gate since A Month in the Country late 2015. It is such a gorgeous theatre. The staff are friendly and obliging. Handy parking I believe although don't bring the car in to the City Centre. Staff member always has correct change... More
