The Gate is a lovely, very small theatre at the top of O'Connell street. There'a a small bar inside - you can meet friends for a pre-theatre drink or cup of tea. The acting was excellent.

While in Dublin my wife and I always go to the 'Gate'.
This theatre is centrally located. We normally book at the box-office early in the day of the show.
This theatre is a beautiful building outside and inside. It is small and intimate and even at the back all the lines can be heard clearly.
Dublin would not be the same without the Gate.
The foyer can be crowded during the intermission, so get out there quickly if you need a drink.

Located in the city centre, the Gate is a wonderful little theatre that consistently delivers high quality, convincing productions. Shows often sell out well in advance, although they all tend to have quite long runs. Over the last couple years I have probably seen over a dozen plays here, each being memorable and enjoyable in its own way.

Most Americans are not aware of Irish theatre, yet it is every bit the equal in quality of London. Many of the best "English" actors, writers, producers, designers are Irish born! No theatre in the world has the personal & professional connection to Samuel Beckett than the Gate. Waiting for Godot & End Game will absolutely blow your mind. Last fall we saw a brilliant production of Oscar Wilde's A Woman of No Importance & it too was an incredible ensemble in a completely different acting style. Here were actors who ranged in experience from Father Ted to Ballykissangel who transformed themselves into British aristocracy. Wilde was as much a revelation Beckett. As a theatre actor & director of 45 years I have seen a great deal of theatre & this is great theatre. The Abbey Theatre is also superb, but you'll get no less at the Gate. Order on line far in advance because tickets go quickly.

I went to see this production of the Tennessee Williams classic in the Gate on a suitably hot and sultry night. The Gate have yet once again produced a winner. This is a marvellous production and the cast are brilliant.Lia Williams is convincing as the unfortunate Blanch whose veneer of respectability is slowly stripped away and she ends up in a world of delusion. Equally strong performances Garrett Lombard as Stanley Kowalski who persistently chips away at Blanchs deceptions and Catherine Walker who plays his wife, The play is complex with many subplots.
The fall from grandeur of a once proud family now living in tiny apartment and how Stanley reacts to the pretentious airs and graces of Blanch. This is a complex work and this production does it justice. Highly recommended
