Abbey Theatre

Portraits of actors and writers who have contributed to the influence of the Irish theatre decorate the foyer. It was opened in 1904 under the direction of Yeats and Lady Gregory, and since the 1950s has been housed in a modern building which also includes the smaller Peacock Playhouse.
