Gate Theatre
Dublin City, Co. Dublin
Part of the cultural and social heart of Dublin City, the Gate Theatre has been both artistically and architecturally, a landmark building in Dublin for over 200 years. It was established as a theatre in 1928 by Hilton Edwards and Micheál MacLiammóir.

Under the guidance of its founders, the Gate Theatre offered Dublin audiences a first introduction to the world of European and American avant-garde theatre, as well as vibrant productions from the modern and classic Irish repertoire.

It was at the Gate Theatre that such luminaries as Orson Welles and James Mason began their prodigious acting careers. Today the theatre continues to attract the finest of creative talent and offers a stimulating and inclusive programme, appealing to theatregoers of all generations, and from a broad spectrum of the population.
