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.
