The Abbey Theatre is Ireland’s national theatre. Its current building was designed by Michael Scott and Ronald Tallon to replace the Abbey’s original home. A portico by McCullough Mulvin Architects was added in 1990 and the main auditorium was re-configured in 2007 by John Keogan Architects with designer Jean Guy Lecat. The Abbey Foyer, Auditorium, Yeats Lounge and Rehearsal Room will feature in this tour. Please note that as this is a working theatre, access to spaces may vary from those printed.

First-come basis: Just turn up and look out for Open House Dublin volunteers. Photography is not allowed on this tour.

Designed by: Michael Scott and Associates
Building Date: 1966
