For Open House Dublin 2022, join us for a special look at the Abbey Theatre building
The Abbey Theatre first opened in 1904, but the original building was badly damaged by fire in 1951. The current building opened in July 1966 and was designed by Michael Scott and Partners, occupying the same site as the original theatre.
Influenced by the work of Mies van der Rohe, it was in the architectural style of austere modernism. 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.
Part of Open House 2022, this tour will explore the building’s history and offer a special look at the Abbey’s stages and auditoria.
