I saw Joyce's "Ulysses" at the Abbey in July and was blown away. It had been 45 years since I'd seen a play there and if "Ulysses" is anything to go by, it should not be missed on a trip to Dublin. It links the...More

Note this review is no based on viewing a performance The Abbey Theatre is a more modern build than other theatres in the City and was rebuilt following a fire. It has a modern appearance and has an ‘underground’ theatre too.

This play is probably the best I've ever seen. It could not be classed as light entertainment or a fun night out but it was amazing, brilliant, intense, emotional, enlightening, moving. I was riveted. The cast are all unbelievably good, especially the younger ones who...More

We've been there twice now -- two years ago for _Donegal_ and in October for _Richard III_ and both productions were powerful and affecting. The Abbey, of course, is theatre history in Dublin, but we'd go there for its current excellence.

The cattle-herding style of the audience entrance, at 15 minutes to Start time, is not pleasant. Surely the Abbey management can come up with a more civilised way of dealing with its patrons. 15 minutes before Start time is not good enough in the Peacock...More

Sorry Julia, I don't know. I'm just a punter who reviewed a play. Perhaps their own website will have the listing. The Theatre Festival is around that time. Paul
