Abbey Theatre, Dublin

26 Lower Abbey Street
Tel: 353 1 878 7222's insider take:

Opened by W. B. Yeats and Lady Augusta Gregory in 1904, the Abbey—Ireland's national theater—was created to showcase Irish culture. Rebuilt in 1966, the 628-seat Abbey presents the plays of Ireland's most-famed and emerging playwrights, while the Peacock, a 157-seat venue downstairs, features newer, more experimental productions.
